Rev David Pickering 

Our vicar, Rev David Pickering, left us on 4 Sep 2022 to work for the Oxford Diocese. We are now in an interregnum.

David became a Christian in his teens, taught in Zimbabwe, worked in publishing and for before his three years at Wycliffe Hall Theological College, Oxford. Following his ordination, he was a curate at Holy Cross Church in Hornchurch, then God led him and Rebecca and their son Jonny here, where, as a Londoner born and bred, he has been on a voyage of discovery about country life. He loves reading, films, swimming and spending time with his family.

Rebecca, David’s wife, loves being a mum and is an RE teacher, working part-time at Abingdon Prep School. She enjoys singing, gardening, cooking and pets! Born in Oxford, she loves living back in Oxfordshire.
