“I hope to fulfil the calling God has placed upon my life, within the local area and I am eager to be part of what God is doing within the diocese.“
– Vicar Tim Nelson
Tim was born in Liverpool and educated in the West Midlands, starting out as a chorister at Lichfield Cathedral. He studied for and obtained a degree from the University of Central England and qualified as a Secondary School music teacher. He is married to Catherine and they set up their first home in a shared Christian household in Birmingham, where they attended a local community church. They subsequently moved to Shropshire and established an NHS Dental Practice, which Catherine ran for 16 years. During this time, they had three children, all boys, who are still living at home. The family moved to Wales four years ago, so that Tim could take up the post of Chaplain at Llandovery College.
They now live in Talley and enjoy being part of the local community. Previously Tim worked as a teacher in secondary schools in England and had pastoral responsibility within various different jobs.
He began to explore a vocation to the Priesthood in England. After some years, the opportunity to start training opened up in the diocese of St Davids as an NSML. So whilst working as a Chaplain, Tim began training for ministry within the Church.
Tim hopes to fulfil the calling God has placed upon his life, within the local area and is eager to be part of what God is doing within the diocese. When relaxing, Tim enjoys reading, watching movies, chess, gardening, real ale and walking.
