Thea is a fun-loving Curate, who enjoys getting outside playing sport, growing vegetables, and eating cake. She’s newly married to Joe and she works at Christ Church in Woking where she leads the evening service and young adult ministry. Thea learned to ski on a Richmond holiday and loves the snowy mountain views, bluebird skies, and exploring the valleys. There’s nothing better than a cold beer on the veranda and a chat about the big questions of life.

Thea and Joe are passionate about Jesus, especially making connections between life and faith, and whether it’s around the fire pit, sharing a delicious dinner at the table, walking in the woods or relaxing on the sofa playing a board game, or watching a movie, there’s always good food, good music and a good laugh to be shared.

Before Ordination, Thea completed a degree in Sociology at Warwick University, raced at Henley, and has travelled extensively, from working with women’s cooperatives in Honduras, to representing the Archbishop of Canterbury on a cricket tour to the Vatican, to growing deanery links in South-West Uganda. Thea loves grappling with scripture, building community through relationships, and encouraging young women and men in their walk with Christ.
