Emma Street was ordained deacon in 2019 and will be ordained priest at some time this year, when circumstances permit.
She and her family will move to the Benefice in the summer. We look forward to welcoming Emma and getting to know her and the family.
New Clergy for Aberavon
The new team Vicar in the Rectorial Benefice of Aberavon is Fr Ben Andrews, currently Rector of Barry, and we are to have a new Assistant Curate, the Reverend Emma Street.
Born in 1975, Fr Ben has been a Christian all his life.
From 1995 to 1996 Ben was the under 30’s rep on the Governing Body of the Church in Wales.
He originally trained in hotel management at Coventry and when it was clear that his real vocation lay in the priesthood he entered St Stephen’s House, Oxford, to undergo theological training and priestly formation. In 2000 Archbishop Barry Morgan ordained him to the diaconate, and a year later he was priested by Bishop David Thomas.
