Rev Val Smith

Val Smith

Val moved to Highley in 1991 with her husband Keith and children – now grown up and flown the nest.  Over the years she has held virtually every role on the PCC (apart from secretary), before ‘crossing the threshold’ and becoming a member of the clergy.  Having spent more than 25 years in teaching, from reception class to teenagers and adults, she was selected for ordination training in 2006 and was ordained in 2009 at Hereford Cathedral.

The teacher in her loves to pass on knowledge, help people develop their gifts and skills and grow into becoming the people they were meant to be.  As part of the Leadership Team, she feels privileged to play a role in significant Life Events for the people of Highley, such as baptisms, weddings and funerals.  Her passion is for more people to know God personally and to experience what it is like to live with God at the centre of our lives.
