Licensed Evangelist, Graham Miles, is the new Rural Chaplain for the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, supporting farmers and their families who may be struggling in this difficult time.
He writes “This role brings together my passions for church, farming and countryside. Lightwave is based at the college in Otley, recently remaned “Suffolk Rural” but then known as the East Suffolk Agricultural Institute, where my farming journey began in 1969-1972. I love reaching out to the farming and countryside communities in Suffolk, visiting farms and countryside communities taking with me God’s love and support to all those l come in contact with in person or by phone. I am here for them, like God is here for me.”
Graham has spent many years working as a Livestock Manager and Shepherd and it is this personal understanding of agriculture that enables him to help people with the specific challenges faced by many.
Graham is available for anyone in the countryside who could do with a listening ear and pastoral support at this time:
