He comes with much experience having been a Team Vicar in Buckhurst Hill, Vicar of St. Mary’s Loughton and currently Vicar of St. John’s Walthamstow. He is also a Member of the Archbishop’s College of Evangelists, currently the Chelmsford Diocesan Advisor on Sport, and Chaplain of Leyton Orient Football Club.

“We as a whole family are looking forward to this new role and becoming part of your communities very soon. We look forward to discovering what God is already doing through your churches and helping to shape the future ministry with you! We bring a passion for Jesus and a real love for community. Jill has a burden for seeing children and women grow in faith as well as a beautiful singing voice, and I love church, getting to know people, and helping every person young and old discover how much God loves them. Can’t wait to meet you!” Alan.
Please remember Alan and his family in your prayers along with the parishioners of the parish of St John Walthamstow.
