Rev Anthony Laotan   Nigel Garwood - PCC Member
Anthony joined the Christ Church family as Vicar in the Summer of July 2020. He is passionate in representing Jesus to the culture in the power and wisdom of the Holy Spirit.  He enjoys making deep spiritual stuff simple, accessible, and applicable to all people of all ages. Anthony loves family time, chatting about God-stuff, reading, football and Chinese takeaways.   Nigel has been on Diocesan Synod for a long time and worshipping here for even longer.  He oversees the smooth running of the toilets and the AV of the church.  In his spare time he enjoys messing about with anything technical and walking the dog.  Nigel is always ready to connect you to the internet.

Laura has been involved in the ministry team at Christ Church in various ways over the years, but her real passion is for community outreach, helping local people connect with each other and with God in creative and accessible ways.   When not pottering in the garden or chatting to her neighbours, she can be found trying to keep up (or keep the peace) with her two small children, trying to escape for a swim or a bike ride and spending time with friends.
