Rev Jayne Shillito

Jayne is curate to the Rural North West Kent Group of churches (which includes Ash, Ridley, Fawkham and Hartley and Longfield.) Jayne was ordained in September 2021 as deacon and ordained in September 2022 as priest.

Jayne began her ministry as curate across the RNWK Group in September 2021.

Jayne’s curacy will last for three years. She explains “this is a special time where I get to know and love the congregations across the group. It’s sort of like an apprenticeship to becoming a vicar”. During these three years Jayne has the privilege of conducting funerals, weddings and baptisms and presiding at Holy Communion while learning all she can about the churches workings.

Before beginning her training for the ministry at St Augustine’s theological college in 2018 Jayne was a primary teacher.

Jayne is married with three children and enjoys sharing the gospel through puppets and story. She also enjoys walking, reading and games nights with family and friends.
