WHO'S WHO

Graham Birch

Vicar

Star Wars Character Most Like: Han Solo

Captain of the Millennium Falcon and always cracking jokes. Not the most organised, doesn’t always do things ‘the conventional way’ but somehow always manages to ensure that things work out ok in the end.

Eirlys Jessop

Church Reader and Christian Aid Representative

Star Wars Character Most Like: Rey

Despite the evidence of injustice in the world, Eirlys never doubts that love and compassion will eventually overcome the darkness.

Carol Richardson

CAP Job Club Manager

Star Wars Character Most Like: Maz Kanata

Quietly spoken and determined. She has a wealth of information on all sorts of stuff and is always willing to help those in need.

Lindsay Jessop

Website Manager

Star Wars Character Most Like: Obi-Wan Kenobi

Quiet and distinguished and, for an older bloke, even looks good in a hoodie!

David Price

Church Warden

Star Wars Character Most Like: Jar Jar Binx

Always keen to help do whatever needs doing but has a tendency to break anything that he tries to fix!

Paul Ellis

Church Organist & Choir Master

Star Wars Character Most Like: Logray

Apart from the remarkably similar facial hair, Paul also has to keep a group of unruly Ewoks (Choir) in check!

Frank Hyland

PCC Chair of Property and School Governor

Star Wars Character Most Like: Admiral Motti

The Imperial Admiral responsible for overseeing the construction of the Death Star and not afraid to challenge those in authority - even Darth Vader’s!

Marie Hyland

Protection for All Co-Ordinator

Star Wars Character Most Like: C3PO

Keen on following the rules and keeping everything in-order. Can get frustrated trying to keep people ‘in check’ – especially Admiral Motti.

Helen Parker

PCC Secretary

Star Wars Character Most Like: General Grievous

Sometimes feels like she could do with a second set of arms to keep the rest of the PCC in order.

Christine Thursfield

PCC Member & School Governor

Star Wars Character Most Like: C3PO

Used to holding positions of authority but cuts through all the discussion to say things 'just like they really are'.

Jean Washbourne

PCC Member & Events

Star Wars Character Most Like: Jyn Erso

Determined fighter for the Rebel Alliance who doesn’t get distracted from what needs doing and always ensures that others ‘pull their weight’.

Ann Walton

PCC Member

Star Wars Character Most Like: Aunt Beru

Raised Luke Skywalker as her own child. Anne is just like everyone’s favourite aunty – fun, caring and always has time for you.

Lesley Phipps

PCC Member

Star Wars Character Most Like: Rose Tico

She’s the beating heart of the Resistance – someone who has dedicated herself to liberating the galaxy from oppression and injustice.

John Forshaw

PCC Member for Mission and School Governor

Star Wars Character Most Like: K-2SO

The ex-Imperial droid who helps the Rebels to overcome Imperial Security protocols. The best there is with ‘Teccy Stuff’.

Ruth Wake

Chair of School Governors

Star Wars Character Most Like: R2D2

Short in stature but manages to gets things done - despite the failings of those around her and without making a big fuss about it.

Val Sinnott

PCC Member and Verger

Star Wars Character Most Like: Yoda

Just as Yoda’s knowledge of the force is second to none, so is Val’s knowledge of St John’s Church. Knows where all the ‘secret things’ are hidden, she does!

Giles Davis

Music Group & Events Co-Ordinator

Star Wars Character Most Like: Max Rebo

Leader of the coolest band in the universe and loves a good party!

Sheila Chadwick

PCC Member

Star Wars Character Most Like: Zam Wessell

Zam Wessell is a shape-shifting assassin and Sheila also tends to ‘shift’ from one role to another in the Church as the need arises. Also, like Zam, Sheila prefers to do things in the shadows and not in the spotlights!

Sarah Hope

Chair of School Governors

Star Wars Character Most Like: Amilyn Holdo

Never gives up, even when facing apparently unsurmountable challenges and opposition. "We are the spark that will light the fire of the rebellion".

Linda Davies

Children’s Co-Ordinator

Star Wars Character Most Like: Princess Leia

The proud face of the Resistance who doesn’t suffer fools gladly and is a tireless force for good. Unlike Leia, however, she bakes cakes for people to eat, rather than wearing them on her head!

Robert Williams

Church Warden

Star Wars Character Most Like: Chewbacca

Work’s tirelessly for the cause and is liked by everyone, even if he sometimes has a good moan!
