Reverend Alison Termie

Born Just outside Glasgow, I was brought up within the Church of Scotland. I went to Glasgow University and gained a BSc in Zoology and parasitology (yes, worms and things). Then I went to Oxford University (St Anne’s College) for a year to do my PGCE, teaching secondary school Biology and Chemistry.

In 1979, newly married Kenneth and I moved to Leicester and I Joined the United Reformed Church. At this time I worked part-time as a Scientific officer for the Leicester and Rutland trust for nature conservation and in the Zoology department of Leicester University as a tutor and Lab demonstrator.

I have ordained Elder in 1984 and served the church in youth work and as assistant Church secretary among other things. Blessed with three children it was late 80’s before they were all at school and I moved out
of the university and into full time teaching in city centre Leicester.

There followed 14 happy years teaching GCSE sciences while at the same time I pursued a number of courses in theology to broaden my understanding of my faith.
LONG STORY SHORT… in 2000 God caught me and I candidated for Ministry, I trained part-time on the ecumenical East Midlands Ministry training course. In 2005 I was ordained into the Spen Valley group pastorate in West Yorkshire where I served for 9 years before accepting a call to the Goyt and Etherow pastorate in North Western Synod.

I particularly enjoy helping children and adults explore their faith in ways that enrich their understanding but always leaves space for the Holy Spirit to bring the challenge of a God who is bigger and more loving and more awesome than we can every comprehend in this life.
