Rosemary Syed

Messy Church
Born and raised in Luton, Rosemary studied History at London University. She worked initially as a History and Economics teacher then in Adult Education teaching ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages). Traveled around the country with her then young family while her husband was completing medical training before settling in Birmingham 27 years ago. Rosemary started coming to St Agnes about 9 years ago, finding a warm welcome, kindness, friendship and, most important, a renewed relationship with God. She’s loved being part of the church family since then, becoming particularly involved in Messy Church which has been great fun with enthusiastic helpers and children!

Enjoys reading, badminton, experiencing different foods and cultures and spending time with her now grown-up family.
