Rev Jo Richards

The Rev Jo Richards

Jo trained locally for ministry with the South East Institute of Theological Education (now St Augustine’s Theological College) under the umbrella of Durham University, where she graduated in January 2018.

Jo was ordained in Canterbury Cathedral in 2014 and went on to serve her curacy in the Parish of St Martin and St Paul, Canterbury before taking up her role as Rector of St Dunstan, St Mildred and St Peter in 2018.

Jo sees her ministry as incarnational, meeting people where they are at, in whatever context that might be, recognising Christ in all that we are and all that we do.

Issues relating to social justice and inclusiveness are particularly close to Jo’s heart.

Before ordained Ministry, Jo worked as a physiotherapist and ergonomist.  She is married with three children.

Jo enjoys walking and the outdoor life in her spare time.
