Meet the Curates

We are delighted that It has now been confirmed by Bishop Robert's office that Elizabeth and Peter Burren will be Curates with the Haldon Mission Community starting next September 2022.

Elizabeth, who is to be a full time, stipendiary priest, will work to Rev Carol and Peter is to be a part- time distinctive deacon* supervised by Rev Jane. They will live in Teignmouth but work across the whole Team area as they work through the very important next stage of their training.

Rev Carol said: "Rev Jane and I are delighted to have the opportunity to be training incumbents for this wife and husband team. We look forward to getting to know them better and sharing the rich ministry and opportunities there are in our lovely part of the world."

Elizabeth currently works as a part-time bookkeeper and Peter works in a civilian role for Devon & Cornwall Police, a job which he will continue alongside his curacy. They write…

“Hello! We are Peter and Elizabeth, ordinands with Exmouth Coastal Churches, and we are so happy and excited to have been invited to serve our curacies in the Haldon Mission Community. We currently live in Exmouth with our two sons, Matthew, 21, a recent graduate in computer science, Joe, 16, an A level drama student, and our cat, Thorin (mouse and sleep expert!). We are looking forward very much to moving to Teignmouth in the Summer and getting to know you all.”
