WHO ARE WE?
Meet the Thie Dy Vea Community
Rev David Shirtliff
After working for twenty years as a Methodist Minister, David is excited to lead this new way of serving God - on a journey with people of all faiths and none. Other skills? DIY, oboe playing and dog walking - just not all at the same time .....
Manx-born Judy is a Spiritual Director, doing retreat work with groups and individuals for 20 years. She’s worked abroad too - from parts of the Middle East to Iona! Other skills? Works wonders with a few leaves, pebbles and scraps of fabric …
Rev Alex Brown
All Alex's adult life has been dedicated to helping people to know God for themselves. He uses great creativity to share his love of the Bible, and to discover new ways of being church. Other skills? Enjoying the great outdoors - and Dad jokes .....
Cash and careful management turns dreams into realities - so Dave’s business expertise, and his work with other charities, will make sure our books always balance. Other skills? He's an ace musician - a player AND producer!
Lizzie is a natural home-maker. Her gift for creating a place of nurturing has given this house its very special atmosphere. Her attention to detail is a massive asset - as is her artistic flair. Other skills? Lovely singer and makes great cakes!
For someone who seldom stops talking, communicating our message seems to be a good fit here! Drawing on 40 years' work in marketing, Jude will make sure everyone knows everything we can offer at Thie Dy Vea! Other skills? Hmmmmm.....
Helpful little videos
Here are a few helpful little videos that explain a little more about who we are, what we're doing, why we're doing it, and how you can get involved too. We are still making them, but we'll post them up here as they come into being!!
Thie Dy Vea - A quick introduction.
Just under 4 minutes to give you a taste of what we believe God is asking of us, here at TDV.
Why an Isle of Man retreat?
This 6 minute video sees two of our community leaders answering this question.
A giving video
Just a couple of minutes - this is an inspirational poem, which reminds us that giving is not just about money, and TDV is not just about one-off experiences, but about a community joining in God's vision.
