Viola Dirnhofer joins our FFWPU-UK Staff Team as our new Assistant Pastor for the Wales, West Country and West Midlands (WWW) community, supporting Elliot Yamamoto in his role as pastor.

What would you like to say to our wider community Viola?

“Hello brothers and sisters! My name is Viola Dirnhofer and you probably know that I am part of the Birmingham community which is now part of the West Country region.

I have recently been given the opportunity to work as Assistant Pastor to Elliott Yamamoto. I am really excited about having this opportunity to work with him to help provide pastoral care to members young, and not so young, but also to be able to forge new friendships with other faith communities as we did recently at an interfaith event at Cleeve House.

I recently completed a master degree in music and there is nothing I enjoy more than singing in faith forums and helping to create a harmonious spirit. But I am also interested in promoting community cohesion and have been very lucky to observe and learn from Dr. David Earle and his wife Patricia here in Birmingham.

I am also interested in providing educational activities for young people and working to support all ages in our own faith community. With very best wishes.” – Viola Dirnhofer

Our Wales, West Country and West Midlands (WWW) Pastor, Elliot Yamamoto, also has a message:

“WWW Holy Community is extremely excited to announce Viola Dirnhofer as our Assistant Pastor! Viola is passionate about music and community cohesion. Please give her a warm welcome and your full support.”
