Rev Lorraine Dobbins
I came to Christ Church in September 2019; I have been Ordained since 2001 and after completing a Curacy in Bournemouth I spent 15 years serving as Vicar at a Church in Weymouth, Dorset. I am Married to Paul and have three Children Evan, Cerys and Aled and a huge bouncy dog called Freda. I enjoy caravanning and camping with the family, dog walking, cycling, fishing, a good film and spending time with friends and exploring the beautiful county of Wiltshire.
I came to Christ Church in 2011 after spending 9 years as Curate/Associate Minister in Oxford Diocese in both an Anglican Church and an Anglican/Baptist Ecumenical Church, while working full-time as a senior manager for a governmental research organisation. I am involved with Eagle’s Wing’s Ministries supporting Christians in industry and training lay church leaders in Africa where for the last few years I have spent ~10 days each year. Also I am currently a part-time Visiting Professor at Cardiff University in the School of Engineering. I am married to Jean and we have two married daughters, four grandsons and a fifth grandchild expected in February. I enjoy travelling, spending time with the family and going to the gym. Jean says I haven’t got time to take up a hobby.
