We are currently in an “interregnum” period – this means that we are without a Rector. Our previous Rector Chris has changed roles within the Church, and we hope to have a new Rector soon.
Anna Dias Curate
Anna is our Curate, trained at St Mellitus, ordained as deacon in September 2020 and as priest in July 2021. Coming from local government and social work development in West London, Anna has a keen interest in community involvement and action. Anna leads our prayer and communion services and is happy to discuss all life events – weddings, baptisms and confirmation, funerals or memorial services.
Robin Griffiths Ordinand
Robin is our Ordinand, studying at St Mellitus. Robin gets stuck in with all kinds of things across the work of our parish, and is especially involved with work restarting St Richard’s. Robin is enrolled on a three-year course at St Mellitus and so spends some of his time in study too.
Linda and Rosemary Churchwardens email@example.com
Involved in much of what goes on in the parish, Linda and Rosemary are our Churchwardens for 2021-22 and are great people to have around! They are responsible for a lot of the work of the parish, and keep an eye on things like the buildings, services, events and much much more!
If you are new to the church please do introduce yourselves to them.
Emma Emmons Safeguarding Officer
Emma is our safeguarding officer. Her role is to ensure that any concerns are appropriately reported both to statutory agencies and to the Diocesan Safeguarding Team. She works with the PCC to ensure the proper implementation of the safeguarding policy. Please see our safeguarding page for more details.
As well as the Rector and the Churchwardens, we have a voted church council, who function much like trustees of other charities do. They meet 6 times a year and are involved in the business of the church, and also its mission and spiritual life.
The members of this year’s PCC are: Rosemary, Frances, Stan, Jane, Sylvia, Wendy, Catherine, Matthew, Robin, Linda, and Abi.
Abi serves as our Treasurer and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
