Fr Ed Backhouse
I am looking forward to moving to Tile Hill in the summer of 2021. It is a privilege to be taking up the appointment as Priest in Charge at St Oswald’s. I am currently serving my curacy in the Trent and Derwent parishes in Derbyshire. I am also a committee member on the Papua New Guinea Church Partnership that provides a link with the church there and the UK through the Anglican Communion.
I am passionate about fellowship, food and building community, and I am eager to see how God will use us all in this revitalisation opportunity for St Oswald’s.
I married my wife Carrie in 2019, and we feel God has called us to serve together. She is a creative arts project coordinator and dementia champion. She is looking forward to using her creativity in the community and being part of the congregation. We both look forward to meeting you all soon as we work together for the Gospel in Tile Hill.
