Revd. James Matthew TuiteJames Tuite ordained as ReaderJames spent some years living in various Christian communities and this journey of faith and life took him into the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of England. "I was conservative in my theology so I was looking into the Anglo Catholic wing of the church". He served as a pastoral assistant during this period.

Later he came to ‘The Anglican Catholic Church’ which is part of the continuing Anglican movement and was licensed there by Bishop Damien Mead as Reader tasked with the job of establishing a small mission congregation in Bristol. At this time he joined the ACC’s religious order ‘The Congregation of the Good Samaritan’ and was clothed as a Franciscan novice in Atlanta, Georgia (USA) taking the name Brother Juniper Mary. He was appointed to lead the congregation in Bristol.
