Our Team

Vicar – James Paice

I am very pleased to welcome you to the St Luke’s website, and I hope to welcome you to one of our church activities soon. My wife and I have found St Luke’s to be a very friendly place, and an excellent church for children. We recommend coming to our 1030 service on Sunday mornings to find out more.

Associate Vicar – Andy O’Brien

 

I first heard about Jesus while studying for a Natural Sciences degree in Cambridge. After a year or so of finding out more about him, I finally decided to put my life in his hands. It was the biggest and best decision of my life. I love being at St Luke’s because I’m near to Wimbledon Common (walks with my family), Richmond Park (rides on my bike), and my in-laws (easy babysitting!).

It’s my privilege to lead our latest venture, Early Birds, oversee Junior Church, and be involved in all sorts of other parts of church life.

I hope to see you soon.

Youth and Women’s Ministry Worker – Ruth Dwyer

 

I grew up in Sheffield, went to Uni and had a year working and travelling abroad before coming to London.

My parents brought me up to know about Jesus and I became a Christian after joining a church where I was lovingly taught and challenged from the Bible to turn to him as Lord.  I love swimming, cheese, stupid games & helping young people to hear about Jesus and how to live for him.

If you are reading this and aged 10-18 there is a group at St Luke’s for you.  The Youth Team would love to meet you & introduce you to the other young people here.  Please head over to the Youth page to find out more..

Church Administrator – Ali Palmer

Married to Roddy with two teenagers, Lilli and Tom and an energetic dog called Truso, Ali is around most days to say hello and offer coffee and a chat. She became a Christian at a Billy Graham crusade (not the same one as Barrie…) and firmly believes that church is the heart of the community.

Church Warden – Clare Luther

 

Clare is married to Tim and has two lovely teenage daughters. She loves looking after dachshunds, writing children’s books, being with her church family, and most importantly of all … telling our community about Jesus! 

Church Warden – Barrie Huckstepp

 

Along with his wife, Jen, Barrie is one of the longest serving members of our church family. If you need to know something, Barrie probably knows the answer! Barrie became a Christian at a Billy Graham crusade (a long time ago) and remains passionate about St Luke’s passing on the good news.
