Benefice Administrator

01993 779 492 | Email
I have been Administrator to the Parish and latterly the Benefice of Witney since October 2005; almost 18 years! Every day is a new adventure and I’m still asked questions that keep me on my toes! I love the variety my post affords and being the first point of welcome for all who attend or are visiting our Churches. So do get in touch if you need information on Services, Baptisms, Weddings, Funerals, Giving and more. I have held varying positions in my life, commencing in Sales and logistics in Reading, then moving to follow Gods call to Bradford as a Deputy Warden of an ex-Offenders Hostel with the Langley House Trust, prior to moving to Carterton 29 years ago. I am a committed Christian that has worshipped in various Churches in Witney where I have been a Steward and Sunday School Teacher. I love the Lord and want to see Gods Spirit move greatly in Witney and bring all to the knowledge of Jesus!
