Our Chaplains

Rev. Adrian Woodbridge, Lead Chaplain

Rev. Adrian Woodbridge joined us from Addenbrooke’s Chaplaincy and, prior to that, was with the Royal Papworth Chaplaincy. His ministry career has taken him to Market Harborough, Lowestoft, Godmanchester and Huntingdon.

In his leisure time, Adrian describes himself as a “very amateur runner”. He is married, has three grown-up boys and enjoys time with his two grandchildren and a mad French Bulldog.


Rev. Jane Nursey – Chaplain

Jane has been a Chaplain here since March 2011 and holds a license as an Associate Minister in the Dereham and District team. God’s calling to ordination was a life change but a natural progression. She’s previously worked in retail and the Library service, both very much revolving around interaction with people. She is passionate about Chaplaincy and being part of the team.

Rev. Alinda Woodrow – Chaplain

Alinda joined the Chaplaincy in 2015, having previously been a Chaplaincy volunteer here.  She was ordained as a Deacon in the Church of England in 2006 and priested in 2007 following her training at Cuddesdon Theological College in Oxford.  She returned to Norfolk to continue her training in the parishes of Attleborough and Sprowston, then found her vocation to hospital Chaplaincy. She was born in Norwich and, prior to ordination, she worked in the church locally in various roles, most recently at Norwich Cathedral as PA to the Canon Precentor.

Pastor Mark Taylor – Chaplain

Pastor Mark Taylor is an ordained Baptist Minister, having studied Pastoral Theology at Spurgeon’s Bible College in London.

Before entering the ministry he was a Therapy Radiographer at Walsgrave Hospital Coventry, then at the old Norfolk and Norwich Hospital in the city.

Born and bred in Cromer, he says it’s a privilege to serve the people of Norfolk in his role as Hospital Chaplain.



Rev. Rosemary Houghton—Chaplain

Rosemary was ordained as an Ordained Local Minister in 2000 to the parish of Earlham, where she’s lived all her life.  While in local ministry she  also worked at Aviva. On  retiring from the parish in 2016, she remained part of the ministry team and takes occasional Sunday services, baptisms, weddings and funerals. In 2013, she became a volunteer at the chapel and, in 2015, was invited to join the Chaplaincy team.  She loves working as a Chaplain and interacting with patients and staff.
