Terrie (short for Teresa) has lived in the same house in Cookham Dean for 19 years, and for 10 years was Parish administrator at Holy Trinity.>/p>
This year Terrie was ordained a priest or what they call a non stipendary local minister. In other words you're a spare vicar for Cookham but we wont pay you!
What I love about Terrie is the way she makes christianity practical. She's got people writing letters on behalf of Amnesty International, encouraged Cookham to provide the capital for people in Chile to build their own homes, introduced Trade Craft to the village so that third world producers are paid a fair price for their goods; She's got people thinking about the Cut the Debt campaign - they said it was impossible two years ago, but America recently wiped out Pakistan's debt when they wanted their help.
Now she works full time for Save the Children.
Terrie is a real pioneering spirit in our village.
