The Revd Sarah St Leger Hills
The Revd Dr Sarah St Leger Hills was born in South Africa, brought up in Northern Ireland, and has lived in Sheffield since the mid 1980’s. She qualified in medicine and worked as a psychiatrist, specialising in psychotherapy. She trained for ordination on the Northern Ordination Course. She was ordained in 2007, and is curate at Holy Trinity Church, Millhouses, Sheffield. She holds an MA in Theology and Pastoral Studies, which focussed on the theology and psychology of reconciliation in South Africa, and is about to undertake doctoral studies in this field.
Her research interests also include healing in terms of the crossover between theology and medicine; and the role of supervision for clergy.
She is Pastoral Care Advisor to the Yorkshire Ministry Course, and serves on a Diocesan mental health working group. She is Chaplain to the RSCM Easter Courses for choristers.
She is a researcher for St George’s Cathedral, Cape Town, on an apartheid memory project; and is Advisor to the Foundation for Church-Led Restitution.
Sarah is married to Richard, a GP, and they have two sons, who are choristers, sailors, and surfers..so family life is busy! Fortunately she shares these interests, and is enlivened both physically and spiritually by swimming in the sea (no matter what the temperature!)
