About Our Priest

The Rev. Canon Nicola Skinner




When did you join Grace?


I joined Grace in the summer of 2015.  


What did you do before?


I studied theology at Birmingham and Oxford, spent 6 months with churches in Shanghai, worked in the rehabilitation of young offenders for a number of years, was ordained in England in 1998 and served a 3 year-curacy in Birmingham before moving to Canada. Here, I spent 5 years as an associate priest in Aurora and then 9 years as incumbent in King City.  


Tell us about yourself.


I have been married to Tim for 23 years and love living in Markham - the best part of the GTA!


I like to cycle, walk my hound, make lovely soap, and eat Chinese food. My passion is to help facilitate lively and compassionate Christian communities that take the faith outside the walls of the building.

I look forward to meeting you when you visit Grace. Please make sure you introduce yourself to me at the beginning or end of the service :)
