Kimonie Nicholls spent her childhood in Surrey, moving to Newport Pagnell in 1992 following three years in Wales and eight in Hertfordshire. Wherever she has lived, Kimonie has immersed herself in some aspect of church life. In this parish she has served on the PCC as a deanery synod representative and as a churchwarden. In 2017 both she and others began to realise that God was calling her to serve in a different way. Following a period of discernment, she was accepted in 2020 to train for ordained ministry. Although kept busy studying and helping the ministry team, she still finds time to enjoy the great outdoors, whether pottering in the garden or walking. She also enjoys experimenting with her culinary skills (especially cakes with vegetables), needlecraft, and trying to research her family history. If you would like to contact Kimonie, her email address is or you can call 01908-610956 or 07760-115834.
