Clergy and Ministry Team


Revd Canon Kate Stowe


Kate has been ordained since 2007, serving in various posts in the Church of England Birmingham.


In September 2020 she became Parish Priest at St Peter’s. She loves the variety of this role, which includes leading the life and worship of St Peter’s, working with our local schools, and making time to chat over a cup of tea.


In her spare time Kate enjoys baking, reading and trying to keep fit (which is constantly impeded by the baking!).
