Rev Stella Hayton

Rev Stella Hayton -   Minister

Hello! I’m the URC minister at St Johns Church, Tenby (as well as URCs in Reynalton, Templeton and Pembroke). I’m married to John (see below!), and we share our house with a menace (otherwise known as a cat) named Barney. For some reason I like lots of things that begin with the letter “c” - cats, chocolate, crosswords, celery and cake being the top five. Since we arrived in Tenby Circuit and Cymru are getting added to the list, but definitely NOT Corona!
