Reverend Petra Shakeshaft


Petra Shakeshaft

My current role

In September 2020 I came to work ‘temporarily’ in the chaplaincy as a locum chaplain, just to help out during the pandemic. In November 2021 I joined the permanent staff, spending one day a week at Kneesworth Hospital. Although all chaplains cover the entire hospital, I have a particular interest in supporting the transplant wards.

Previous history

After working for a number of years as an artist, based in a studio at home, I finally caved in and trained as a priest in the Church of England. The next five years were spent in very rewarding parish ministry.
