MEET THE MINISTRY TEAM
VICAR: Revd Nick Wills. Nick is our resident Vicar, comedian and Ipswich supporter. He is Married to Becky, who is the Archdeaconry of Northampton Youth Missioner, and they have two sons Jamie and Matty.
ASSISTANT PRIEST: Revd Peter Gompertz. Peter has been at the heart of St Andrews’ family since Morey, his wife, had her Curacy with us and loved it so much that she stayed on as Assistant Priest and then got Peter to join her. We are all still feeling deeply the loss of Morey in October 2018. Peter continues to serve and minister here, through his creativity and artistic talent, wisdom, experience and his deep pastoral ministry, taking Communion services and leading in many other ways.
CHURCHWARDENS: John Weaver and Debbie Cox are our Churchwardens. They have been elected as leaders in our Church by our members. One of the focuses of the role of Churchwarden is on the maintenance and upkeep of the building. John and Debbie are very grateful for all of the help that they receive in this from so many people from cleaners through the gardening team to those who offer practical skills and experience in particular areas. John is also very involved with some of the Financial and Administrative areas of our Church’s life, and Debbie is taking a lead in our Church redevelopment project.
CHURCH INTERNS: Amy Stevenson and Shakeel Nurmahi – Amy and Shakeel are St Andrew’s two church interns. They work with St Andrew’s as a part of Peterborough Diocese’s ‘Echo’ intern scheme. Both Amy and Shakeel love being involved in the many exciting ministries here at St Andrew’s. Amy and Shakeel are both exploring a call to further church ministry.
