Rev’d Judith Sweetman
Rev’d Judith moved to Reepham with her husband Rufus in 2018 , having retired from full time stipendiary ministry, firstly as a curate in Essex and then as an incumbent of five parishes in Suffolk. This followed a 25 year career in librarianship and specialist information work in local government. She is now only semi-retired (!) having joined the Ministry Team as Honorary Associate Priest. This means Judith is “on duty” and available to assist Revds Helen and Keith and other Ministry Team members in the benefice for three days a week, usually Friday, Saturday and Sunday. As well as taking some Sunday services, and providing holiday cover for Keith and Helen, she sometimes takes funerals and other occasional offices and offers pastoral care and support, particularly in Reepham.
