St Andrew's Church, Chelmsley Wood

Faces to get to know

We have a team of ministers responsible for leading worship in the church and offering pastoral care to local people.

Rev'd Mike Harmon is our Rector

who recently joined us from the parish of Aston and Nechells, to lead the team here. A keen cyclist, Mike and his bike are becoming a regular sight around our streets. Be sure to give him a wave if you see him passing by.

Barry Turner and Goff Smith are our Church Wardens

Friends since their school days, Goff and Barry are responsible for the day-to-day running of the church in collaboration with Mike. We're confident they will do a fantastic job and Mike won't have to send them to see the headmaster.

This is Barry and Goff at their Commissioning Service.

And this is what they got up to when they thought that the photographer wasn't looking.

Shirley Turner and Jolyon Walford are our Readers.

Shirley regularly leads funerals for those recently bereaved and works tirelessly within the church's ministry to children. In the picture Shirley is on the left saying sweet and endearing things to husband Barry.

Jolyon was licensed in 2014 and is a volunteer youth worker. Jo is a keen armchair sportsman, but can occasionally be spotted in a dinghy, kayak or canoe. He still dreams of playing drums in a successful rock band... minus the long hair! Jo never travels without his security team - seen flanking him in the picture.
