About

Ordination

The Revd Dr Daniel Newman

I am the Assistant Curate at St. John’s, Weymouth, in the Parish of Radipole and Melcombe Regis. I was ordained Deacon by Nicholas, Bishop of Salisbury, on Sunday 30th June 2013.

I was baptized at the age of seven months, and started hearing the good news of Jesus Christ from a young age through the children’s work of my parish church. Whilst reading Medicine at Brasenose College, Oxford, the opportunities I had to preach, lead Bible studies and be involved in evangelism, along with the encouragement of others, helped me to start thinking about full-time, ordained ministry. I prepared for ordination at Ridley Hall and read Theology at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge.

I am twenty-eight years old, married to Brooke, and have two children – Cædmon, aged three, who is named after an Anglo-Saxon monk and poet, and Jerome, aged one, who is named after the church father. I enjoy reading the novels of John Buchan, Dorothy Sayers and P. G. Wodehouse, and listening to Renaissance and Baroque music. I like fencing and going for walks.
