The Welwyn Minstry Team Clergy
There are three members of the clergy in the Welwyn Ministry Team - the Revds. David Muchin, Susannah Underwood and Diane Whittaker.
David joined the Welwyn Team as Team Rector at the end of September 2010.
"I was brought up in North London though my parents now live in the West Country. I read Mathematics at Imperial College London for my first degree, and after that spent a year as a pastoral assistant at Lahore Cathedral in Pakistan with USPG.
On return I trained for the ministry at Ripon College Cuddesdon. After ordination in the Diocese of London I served my curacy at Golders Green Parish church, and after four years moved to the Diocese of St Albans to serve for five and a half years as Precentor of the Cathedral.
For the past eight years I have been relatively local, being Vicar of Hatfield Hyde (a large parish surrounding the QEII hospital in Welwyn Garden City). I have very much enjoyed my time here.
So much has happened in that time, including last year the complete reordering of the church. I have also tried to keep my studies going, and last year gained a doctorate in theology from Heythrop College London.
For relaxation my wife, Ysmena, and I enjoy walking the dogs, spending time at our small cottage in Norfolk and we both have a love of music."
