This Sunday, 16th July, Revd. Sam Peilow will be welcomed as the new Curate to the Bishop in the Killeshandra group of Parishes. Revd. Sam has recently completed Church of England ordination training at Oak Hill College, and was ordained deacon in London Diocese earlier this month.
Revd. Sam grew up in Derry, attending his local Church of Ireland parish. He began to grasp the gospel clearly during his teens, through the diocesan youth ministry in Derry and Raphoe (alongside Scripture Union, Crosslinks camps, and countless other influences!) After a number of years working in the software industry, Sam began a two-year ministry internship in a city-centre church in Dublin, where he met his wife, Georgina. Georgina, originally from Donegal, has taught English as a second language in both Dublin and London, although these days she’s a full-time Mum to Zoë, with another baby on the way later in the summer. Sam and family are looking forward to moving to Killeshandra, getting to know the town and the community, and to serving the church and sharing the good news of Jesus.
