Rev Stephne van der ToornRectorI was born in South Africa. Married Joop in 1977 and we have four daughters. Worked for Scripture Union in SA after qualifying as a teacher librarian and went on to do theological studies. After a family break I joined Akasia Public Library outside Pretoria where I was responsible for the computerisation of the catalogue and the loans system. I was ordained priest in Pretoria in 1995 and served in the Parish of Pretoria North with Brits. We came to the UK in 2001 and spent 6 years in Fawley Parish in the Diocese of Winchester.
Jesus changed my life around in 1968 and I am still learning what it really means to follow him. Going blind hasn’t dented my faith, it just means there is more to learn.
