Team Rector of the East Greenwich Team Ministry and Vicar of Christ Church

As Team Rector, I am committed to leading and encouraging Christ Church and the East Greenwich team as together we seek to follow God’s call and to love and serve God and neighbour through our ministry and mission. I love this part of London and enjoy being part of such a diverse and fast changing parish and community in East Greenwich.

As assistant curate I feel privileged to be part of the Christ Church community and to minister in East Greenwich, my first parish after ordination. I am passionate about mission and community development, particularly in deprived neighbourhoods and the world church. Previously I was a USPG mission companion in Tanzania and more recently running a South London adventure playground.

Children and Families Minister

As part of my role as Children and Families Minister and a licensed Reader in the parish, Its also my privilege to lead the Connect Mums group. As a mother to two children I’m aware how busy life can be and seek to support others to nurture their faith and spiritual life amidst the hectic nature of family life. The inclusive and diverse fellowship of Christ Church is a wonderful setting for me and my family where we all experience a warm welcome and encounter God.
