The Reverend Mandy Reynolds (CofE): Trust Chaplain

Based out of Ipswich Hospital. Also working across Colchester Hospital, Bluebird Lodge, Aldeburgh Hospital, Clacton Hospital, Harwich Hospital, Essex County and Felixstowe Hospital.

I have worked in Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust for just over two years. Prior to becoming a hospital chaplain, I was Rector of a Benefice of seven churches and eight villages in a very rural and agricultural part of Suffolk.

Following ordination training with the NTMTC and following ordination at St Paul’s cathedral I served my title as curate at the thriving Parish Church in Wembley, a very multicultural area, and working within the community there. From there I served for 10 years as a Chaplain to the Forces, with a number of assignments overseas including a 6 month operational tour. During my army service I also served as Chaplain to The Army Widows Association and am currently Chaplain for Normandy Veterans.

I have two sons and eight grandchildren of whom I am exceedingly proud.
