Reverend Diana Greenfield joins The Sunday Hour
I became aware of Diana by chance when I heard her on GFM107.1 Radio, doing an interview on the Monday morning show that Mell Turford presents. I was bowled over by her voice and cheerful disposition. Diana finished with a prayer for a friend who was returning to frontline working. At this point I had no idea that Diana was a Reverend.
I contacted Mell and asked if he would be kind enough to pass on my details and ask if Diana could contact me, which she duly did, and signed off her email as Rev Diana Greenfield. This gave me the biggest smile!
I arranged a whatsapp video call, and to my great pleasure Rev Diana said she would be very happy to have a new slot on The Sunday Hour. As simple as that, It was done. We talked about the format and the logistics, and that I particularly liked the interview being “outside” whilst walking her dog.
The Revd Diana Greenfield was ordained deacon on 4 July. She will serve a curacy at St John’s, Glastonbury, and be an ordained pioneer in Glastonbury and Street.
The Revd Diana Greenfield knows more about dance music than most ordinands, having been a nightclub chaplain during her eight years as a Church Army Officer in Maidstone, Kent. She says that nightclub revellers are “surprisingly open to spiritual things, as long as you don’t force it on them”.
Sister Greenfield (her Church Army title) decided to train for the priesthood after realising that “there was an important role for the ordained priest within fresh-expressions communities”.
She has trained at St Mellitus College, in London, a theological centre that allows students to study while in practical church ministry. She has also been studying for an MA in Theology and Ministry at King’s College, London, and is near to completing a dissertation that compares the content of self-help manuals with the Sermon on the Mount.
Ms Greenfield has moved to Somerset to begin her first curacy. She also has experience of working among people who practise New Age and Pagan spirituality, in that part of Somerset where the Glastonbury Festival takes place each year. “I definitely have an unusual background and breadth of experience,” she says.

I know that Diana will be a welcome member of the Sunday Hour family, and am looking forward to being able to have 2 such great church leaders providing worship and prayer, not only the local radio community, but also to the community across the globe. We have the opportunity to reach an unlimited audience, especially as we are all caught in this Global Pandemic and unable to attend our usual places of worship.
I know that my Christian knowledge and spiritual wellbeing can only benefit and will increase my depth and understanding.

“Its not your usual Sunday Service”
This is where it all happens, it is all digital, no vinyl sadly, but in this modern world it certainly is easier.
The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; Your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of Your hands
