Mairwen Large

Mairwen Large has been licensed as a reader since 2009 and was appointed to work 16 hours a week as a Children and Families Worker in September 2015. Prior to that she was working as a primary school teacher in the Welsh medium school in Abergavenny.  She is married to Simon, the church’s IT bod and has two grown-up children. A fluent Welsh-speaker from Cardiff, she met Simon when they were called to the Lee Abbey Community.

She loves to tell stories – be it the story of God at work in the Bible or the story of God at work in out lives today; whether the audience is a congregation in church or a group of five year olds. She started her ministry at St Ed’s in 1998 as a keyboard player / worship leader and has gradually worked through the roles, to the place she never thought that she was called – to work with young children and families.

In 2022 Mairwen was accepted for ordination training starting full time in September and has stepped down from her CFW role.
