Parish priest

Michael White Parish priest

I worked in Kingstanding before coming to Tamworth in 2011. Prior to that I worked in youth ministry for 14 years. It’s great to be part of a team sharing the responsibility of doing God’s work. As disciples we need to live out the Gospel together in a radical and joyful way. When not doing that, I enjoy nothing more than riding my bike with friends.

As well as my ministry in the parish I'm also the prison chaplain at a local prison. When not working I like travelling, watching sport and drinking beer.

I have worked in the parish office for over 25 years and witnessed many changes. Prior to that, I was a Welfare assistant at St Elizabeth’s School, which my 3 children attended. Twelve years ago, I did a degree course in Psychotherapy. So, I now have a private counselling and psychotherapy practice. Outside of that, I love spending time with family and friends, being outside in nature and travelling.

I enjoy walking and sharing a meal with family and friends.

I am in my 20’s. I grew up in this parish, but I came back to the Church in 2020. It is so good to be back. I work in a secondary school in behaviour management and child welfare. I am now the parish youth worker focussing on our teenagers. In my spare time I like to walk my dogs.
