Welcome to New Vicar of St Paul’s Church JQ Revd. David Tomlinson

Revd. David Tomlinson has been appointed as the new Vicar of St Paul’s. He comes with much experience and understanding of the City of Birmingham.

Until the beginning of 2020 David was Team Rector of Saffron Walden and Villages Team Ministry and Area Dean of Saffron Walden, in the diocese of Chelmsford.
Below are words from David himself:

‘I am delighted to have been appointed Vicar of St Paul’s and to have been called to serve in the Jewellery Quarter. I am very grateful to Andrew for his excellent leadership and his contribution to the community over recent years and will be looking to nurture the life that has arisen and strengthen the church’s role in the JQ, and City.

I greatly look forward to getting to know everyone. I come with a rich and varied experience of ministry, and a history and commitment to collaboration in and beyond the church. I am currently chairing Thrive Together Birmingham the community regeneration arm of the diocese, for instance.

I am father to grown-up daughters and am married to Jenny. Cycling is my main sporting pursuit, now that my footballing and cricketing days are over, and I have completed LEJOG (Land’s End to John O’Groats) and MIZMAL – the Irish equivalent).

Cooking, reading and the arts are my other passions. I also write, on leadership, worship, love and spirituality, and my second book is to be published in the autumn’.
