ABOUT

Rhian Prime - Team Vicar

I am a Team Vicar in the Glamorgan Heritage Coast Parish, based in St Athan and working in the communities of Gileston, St Athan and Llanmaes.

I have been working in the Ordained ministry for 33 years, originally in the Methodist Church, but more recently in the Church of Wales. I have also worked for seven years as a hospital chaplain.

The churches of St Giles, St Tathan and St Cattwg are found in the Vale of Glamorgan, in the heart of South Wales. Although I'm a Vale girl, I've spent most of my life journeying around England and Wales with my work in the Church, but two and a half years ago I moved back to the Vale of Glamorgan and took up my current role.

I am married to David and have two adult children and two four-legged friends.
