Rev'd Karen Hunter Jones

I am a Celt, from Ireland, but from the age of one I began travelling around the world. My first was from Belfast, N. Ireland, to Karachi, Pakistan, via the Suez Canal with my missionary parents. I went on to live on Mahé in the Seychelles, then Delhi, India, and finally I went to an international boarding school in Mussoorie, in the foothills of Himalayan mountains for my high school education.

When I was eighteen I returned to N. Ireland for university, completing my first degree in Graphic Illustration. I spent a lot of my free time involved in Rostrevor Christian Renewal Centre, led by Cecil Kerr, a Church of Ireland priest with a passion for the Peace Process and reconciliation between Catholic’s and Protestants.

I moved to England with my husband and had three beautiful children, one of whom sadly died.  I am now divorced, despite attempts to save our marriage, and my children are now grown up.

I was ordained in 2006, and along with priestly duties, I have written books and been a co-director of Ignite Trust Charity overseeing an Anglican fresh expression of church. I was licensed to the cluster on 17th July 2018.
