Rev’d Cathy Writes:

I am delighted and honoured to have been asked to become your next priest.Cathy

It is already clear to me that both St John’s and All Saints are very special places, each with their own history and playing important spiritual roles in the lives of their people and communities. Both buildings have the wonderful feeling you get in places where the walls are lined with layers prayer and devotion over many years.

I am very much looking forward to joining you in whatever God has in store for us over the coming years. Together I hope that we can start to discern how we might fulfil our calling to reach out to the surrounding communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ so that more and more people will come to know the joy and peace that is only found in God.

God bless you,


Cathy has been Curate of All Saints, Orpington, which she has led through interregnum over 8 months. She has two adult children and two cats! Her first degree was in theoretical physics from Cambridge University and her theology degree was awarded by Durham. Before ordination she had a varied career, initially in avionics, then moving into the City where she held a senior training position in international banking and most recently she was a physics teacher at St Olave’s school.

Cathy is very much looking forward to working with the church communities in Sidcup and Foots Cray as we look to engage with the wider community in these places and to proclaim the Gospel.

Please pray for her as she prepares to move, and in particular as she takes on a new role and ministry with us here.

Her Licensing and Installation will take place at 7:30pm on Tuesday 29th May 2018 at The Parish Church of St John the Evangelist, Church Road, Sidcup DA14 6BX.

All are welcome!
