Rev Chris ConnCurate
I joined All Saints in June 2015 as the Curate. Together with my wife Lucy and three children Noah, George and Charis, we are enjoying the delight of living in the middle of Legoland Thorpe Park, Chessington World of Adventures axis. I am a motorbike riding, Liverpool supporting, Ulster-man, who appreciates a good ale and loves nothing more than learning how great Jesus Christ is. I consider it a real privilege to be part of a church that is doing just that.
Alastair DuncanChurch Warden
I have been at Laleham church for 52 years, having grown up here. I am married to Lorna and we met at Laleham as teenagers. We have three children, Ryan, Amy and Sean. I have been involved in the music for many years, and lead the worship group at the 1030 service in the school. I have been on the PCC now for 20 years and am in my 10th year as church warden. I have been very active in the new service in the school, which was planted five years ago and hope to continue to see growth there. I enjoy playing with a secular band when I get a chance, love DIY and cars, and when not too busy I can be found indulging my passion for Formula One
Vaughan SmithChurch Warden
I am married to Jo and we have two grown-up children. As well as being a church warden and PCC member, my role in the church involves the setup of the school hall for our services each week. I work in the automotive re-manufacturing industry.
Alan McLaughlinLicensed Lay Minister
I’ve been worshiping at All Saints Laleham since about 1980. I got married here, both my daughters were baptised here and my eldest daughter was married here. So I have a lived a lot of life through my church. This led me in 2010 to complete my training and become one of the ministry team. This means I preach (teach) at services, lead worship and promote the pastoral care within the parish, under the guidance of our Vicar. A nurse by profession, I took my NHS pension after 38 years, but still work 3 days a week as a specialist nurse in Occupational Health. Mind you, with a grandson now it feels full time again!
Alan VinceLicensed Lay Minister
I am one of 3 Licensed Lay Ministers at All Saints’. This involves preaching, leading services and general ministry. During my nearly 20 years in this role, I was seconded to Staines Parish for 8 years and returned to this church family during our interregnum around 7 years ago. I am married to Jan (the Church Safeguarding Officer) and we are both retired teachers. We have 2 grown up children, Jenny, married to Tim, who still worships with us and plays in the church band (and has given us 2 beautiful grandchildren) and David, who is married to Silvia and now lives in Barcelona. We make good use of Skype! My interests include walking, the music of Elgar, reading and relaxing with friends
Richard AttertonLicensed Lay Minister
I’m a Licenced Lay Minister, which means that the Church of England has given me a licence to preach. I mainly speak or lead at the 10.30am and 6.30pm services and I’m also a member of the PCC. I’ve lived in Laleham for over 40 years, with my wife Marion. We have four adult children and 6 grandchildren. I retired from full time work in 2012, but I still do some consultancy work and some writing.
Jan VinceChurch Safeguarding Officer
My family and I have worshipped at All Saints’ for over 30 years and Wendy and I ensure all our volunteers receive Safeguarding training every 3 years, and do their very best to look after our children whilst they are in their care. I am also the Church DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) Evidence Checker, which means all our volunteers are police checked and cleared to work with our children. New volunteers are coming forward all the time and everyone is re-checked every 5 years. When I am not doing this, I enjoy looking after our 2 little grandchildren and if there is any time left, I enjoy gardening, walking, reading and relaxing with friends!
Wendy WilliamsChurch Safeguarding Officer
I am married to Simon and have been a member of All Saints’ since we were married in 1984. We had 5 children Tom, Joe, Abbie and twins Toby and Sam, now in their 20’s and flying the nest. I love children and have worked at All Saints’ Laleham Church Playgroup from the time my youngest attended. This was ideal as it enabled me to combine work with family life, and caring for Abbie who has Down’s Syndrome. I am also part of the team of volunteers who teach on Sunday mornings in ‘Super Saints’ for children aged 7-11. At home I enjoy cooking and reading, going to the gym and getting away for holidays.
Jo SmithFamilies Co-ordinator
I am married to Vaughan and have the same two grown up children! I run Parenting courses, and help co- ordinate events for Families in the church, including Toddler Group. I also oversee Super Saints, the 8-11 years Sunday school group. Outside of the church , I volunteer for the Trussel Trust, am a School Governor and also work for Surrey CC as a Contact Supervisor.
Alexandra WrenChildren's Champion
I live in Staines and am one of the youth team, teaching our Super Saints (8-10yrs) and The Praise Factory (mixed age youth work) on Sundays. I enjoy using my creative energy and leadership skills during our Summer Holiday Bible Club too. On the PCC, it’s my role to champion children’s interests and make sure that children’s needs are taken into account as we plan for All Saints’ Laleham now, and in the future.
Mary HuntChurch Administrator
My husband Ian, and I, moved to Shepperton after we married, and have been part of All Saints’ for over 20 years. We have 2 sons, Rob and Tom. Both are now grown up and have left home, so we are “empty nesters”. My work in the church office is a job I really enjoy. I am involved with planning baptisms, weddings and funerals, arranging the lettings of our church hall, raising invoices, ordering supplies, answering enquiries, and a whole host of other things We are a busy office located in the heart of Laleham, opposite the Vicarage. Previously I worked in this area as a community nurse which involved delivering nursing care to people in their own homes, so I’ve had quite a career change. The office is open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. If you have any questions about All Saints and services or events going on, please give us a call. We are always happy to help.
Claire WelhamChurch Administrator/PA
I work three days a week in the Parish Office as an Administrator, and PA to Rev Andy Saville. One of my roles is to prepare the service sheets for our Sunday Services and coordinate the many volunteers who support All Saints’. I also help to support Andy with general administration, arranging meetings and dealing with correspondence.
I live with my husband Michael, and our son, who is at Bishop Wand School. We live in Ashford and have worshipped at All Saint’s for about 8 years. I also work with Michael in our Greetings Card business so you might also bump in to me while I am merchandising the card display in your local convenience store!
