He was ordained in 1986 and served his curacy at Hornsey Parish Church. He returned to Hornsey in 2002 being made Curate of Holy Innocents and Chaplain at the Greig City Academy. He was inducted as Vicar at Holy Trinity in 2007.


Pastoral Assistants

Matilda is a pastoral assistant at Holy Innocents. She grew up just around the corner in Harringay and walked past Holy Innocents on her way to school every day. She’s felt her calling growing since she was a teenager, and this year decided to take the leap and serve as a pastoral assistant. She’s excited to be back in London, and part of the Holy Innocents community. In her spare time, she loves to get arts and crafts-y and can frequently be found sewing, drawing or baking.

Our sister church, Holy Innocents, also has a pastoral assistant, Graham, who can sometimes be spotted in Holy Innocents. Graham already has some experience with working in a parish, and has worked with young people in the church extensively. In his spare time, he enjoys visiting his family and cooking.

Matilda and Graham’s Pastoral Assistant colleague in the Hornsey scheme is Phil Jury. Phil is based at Hornsey Parish Church, working alongside Fr Bruce Batstone.
