Brief History

Reverend Dagmar

was inducted as our rector on the 8th of September 2021.

Before joining us at St John’s, Reverend Dagmar was Assistant Curate at All Saints Aston.

She was ordained as a deacon on Sunday 2nd July 2017, at Sheffield Cathedral.

Reverend Dagmar comes originally from Kuncice pod Ondrejníkem in North Moravia but has been living and working in the UK for about seven years.

She discovered the Church of England whilst working in a pub which was adjacent to Portsmouth Cathedral. She started worshipping there and in due course, became Head Server.

She was recommended for training following her Bishop’s Advisory Panel (BAP), earlier in 2015.

Dagmar spent the previous two academic years, studying theology at Ripon College, Cuddesdon, just outside Oxford.

She was very fortunate to spend her four-week-long summer placement in July 2016, to be at Westminster Abbey.
