Rev Paul Ellis
I grew up in Devon in the ‘60s and ‘70s and lived there for a further twenty years while working in the NHS as a community Speech & Language Therapist. I was heavily involved in my local United Reformed Church in Brixham and it was from there that I trained locally for the URC ministry. I was ordained in 2008 to my first pastorate of Witham and Terling in mid-Essex. After eight fulfilling years there, I was called to move on and am excited now to be minister at Hutton & Shenfield Union Church.
This welcoming Church of over a hundred people shows great potential for the future and I look forward to working with them in developing the worship to be more relevant to all generations, and to extending the outreach within Hutton.
Jill and I have three adult offspring, spread around the country. We enjoy walking on my days off.
