From Revd. Hannah Gordon
"I am excited to have been appointed as the Rector of this wonderful parish. I am looking forward to getting to know you all over the coming months and years, as we journey forward together into this new season, trusting God to guide and shape us.
I am currently Curate at the Good Shepherd, Carshalton Beeches, where I have been since I trained for Ordination at St. Mellitus College as a full time ordinand with a three year placement at St. John's, Shirley. Prior to that I was at Emmanuel Croydon for 14 years.
I used to play rugby but have now taken up running (slowly) as a way to offset middle age. I enjoy reading trashy novels as well as weightier tomes, listening to an eclectic mix of music, drinking copious amounts of decent coffee and watching 'Call the Midwife!' I am married to James and we have two daughters who are nearly 12 and 9.
I am sure you will have many questions and I hope to be able to answer these in time. My licensing date is Tuesday 30th May at 7.30pm. For now please do pray for me as I end well here in Carshalton, and for my family as we get ready to move. Please be assured that my prayers are with you too. Hannah"
