Who's Who?

There are a great many people that work within the church to make it the active organisation that it is.  Below you will find just a few of the key people whose faces you will regularly see around the church. These people guide us spiritually and help ensure we have a caring, pleasant and positive environment in which to worship God.

Vicar - Revd Beverly Watson

Revd Beverly WatsonBeverly Watson was born in the Midlands, and grew up within a committed Christian family. She studied music as a young person, and theology at Cambridge as an undergraduate. Before being ordained deacon at St Paul’s Cathedral in 2008, and priest in Birmingham Cathedral in 2009, Beverly taught music (French horn and piano), and was in charge of music at a centre for adults with learning disabilities. She joined All Saints' in September 2015.

Beverly is married to Andrew, and they have four children: Hannah (married to Peter), Samuel, Joseph, and Lydia.

Curate - Revd Pippa Ford

Revd Pippa FordPippa was placed at Burpham church for her training before ordination and the first part of her training as a curate.  The Diocesan Team then decided that it would be good for her ministerial development to have a different experience in another church so she joined us at All Saints' in February 2017. She will be living in Burpham and working from a study at the All Saints Vicarage.

Churchwardens - Carolyn Nicholls and Henrietta HardingHenrietta HardingCarolyn Nicholls

The churchwardens share responsibility for the administration of the parish and care of the church buildings with the Vicar. 

Carolyn and Henrietta possess a wealth of knowledge between them, so if you have a question, idea or concern, then they are always a good place to start if the Vicar is not to hand!

Licensed Lay Minister (LLM) - Mike Truman

Mike Truman

A LLM (or Reader) is a lay person, communicant member of the church, licensed by the Bishop to assist the Vicar by preaching, teaching, leading worship and helping with pastoral and other work. They may not preside over the Eucharist, nor lead weddings or baptisms.

Mike and his wife Sara are very familiar faces in the church, having been so active in so many aspects of our worship and outreach for many years, from preaching to coffee rotas, from lesson reading to panto appearances!

LLM - David Barclay

David BarclayDavid is a more recent addition to our congregation moving to the area two years ago with his wife Marguerite following a time in the Scottish Borders. They had lived previously in Woking where David had been trained and commissioned at St Andrews on Goldsworth Park. Barbara discovered this and it wasn’t long before he was commissioned by the Bishop for lay ministry at All Saints’!

Their younger daughter Emily lives close by in Guildford with her husband and 2 children, whilst their other daughter Tasha lives in Hong Kong with her husband and 2 daughters.

They also enjoy travelling and have good memories (and some disorganised photos!) of visits to the Continent, Canada, South Africa, the Baltic, The Holy Land and Hong Kong.
