Who’s Who – Penny Cuthbert

Penny CuthbertFrom a ‘vague belief in God’ in childhood, Penny’s faith crystallised at Durham University, spending time with church-going friends and being especially impressed by Jesus’ story of the prodigal son. On her return to Reading, Penny attended Greyfriars Church, met and married husband Simon and began to feel a call to priesthood.

Ordained at Christ Church, Oxford in 2012, Penny spent four years as a curate in South Reading and living in Whitley.

As Associate Vicar at St John’s, she is tasked with leading the congregation on a journey of discovery towards a new future, so that it has a greater impact in its local community and the church grows stronger for future generations.
