Who's Who in the Diss Team Ministry

Who's Who

The Reverend Canon Tony Billett

The Reverend Canon Tony Billett

Canon Tony Billett has been Rector of Diss since 2001, but only since the start of 2013 as Rector of the newly formed Diss Team Ministry. He has previously served as Rector of Stalham (North Norfolk) for ten years, and before that two curacies at Waltham Abbey in Essex and St. Peter Mancroft in the city of Norwich.

Tony describes himself as a 'middle of the road Anglican' who enjoys good music and food, playing bridge, and trying to stay human. He is married to wife, Liz and they have two grown up sons who live in London and Norwich.

Tony is very happy to be part of a lively and expanding team of parishes who seek to make God's love known in their communities.

 

The Reverend Wendy Evans

The Reverend Wendy Evans

Wendy is our newly appointed Team Vicar having moved to Diss from Oulton Broad where she was curate.  She is married to Neal, mother to daughters Emma and Sarah and Nana to grandchildren Oakley and Robyn.  

As a Franciscan she upholds the traditions of the church, values immensely the people of the church but sees that we need to ‘preach always, speaking if you must’ and thereby spread the Goodnews of Christ.  She describes herself as ‘a bit Tiggerish mixed with a lot of Roo’.  She enjoys seeing her family, bird watching with Neal, knitting, puzzles and coffee with friends.

Wendy is looking forward to getting to know the area and the people and to join in with what God is doing and going to do in this place.
