Meet the St Clement's Team
Rachel Gibson - Rector
Rachel Gibson has been Rector at St Clement’s Church in Oxford since July 2015, and is thoroughly enjoying getting to know St Clement’s church family, and the wider community around St Clement’s.
Previously she was Associate Vicar at St Andrew’s Church, Chorleywood, and before that was Curate at Christ Church, Chorleywood. Before ordination, Rachel worked for 17 years in a variety-filled Civil Service career; and has studied (at different times!) physics, for an MBA, and theology. Rachel is married to Mark, and enjoys nothing better than a day in the company of friends and family.
Philip Lockley - Curate
Philip Lockley has been Curate at St Clement’s since July 2017. Before training for ordination in Durham, he was a tutor and researcher in theology and history in the University of Oxford. He knows what it’s like to be a student for too long; and he has considerable experience as an exhausted parent. Philip is married to Ruth, and they have two small, Lego-obsessed boys easily audible in church.
Dave Burt - Youth WorkeR
We're delighted to welcome Dave to the St Clement's team! He grew up down the road in High Wycombe and has just completed a degree in Youth Work and Theology at Oasis College in London. Following graduation in July, he married Jess in August and they moved to Abingdon a few weeks later! Dave loves sport, especially rugby and tennis, films, music, travelling and food (lots of it!) He's settling into his new role here, getting to know St Clement's young people and his way around The Mish, our youth venue.
Fiona Livingstone - Children's Worker
Fiona has been Children’s worker at St Clement’s since 2014. She has been a long-term member of the church and is using her skills and experience to lead the teams that look after our young and very young members.
Fiona is also involved with our Café Church initiative.
Theresa Gray - Licensed Lay Minister
Theresa has been a member of St. Clement’s since 1989.
She is a Licensed Lay Minister with a particular care for the older members of our congregation and community, valuing their contribution and ensuring that the interests of those in their third age are well represented. Theresa also offers bereavement support. She is a member of the team that runs regular CAP Money courses and is a Trustee of two local charities with connections to St. Clement’s.
Her interests include walking, art, geology, travel and tapestry.
Heather has been parish administrator at St Clement's for 4 years and she is the one you will speak to or email if you contact the Parish Office.
When not in the office, Heather enjoys spending time with people, particularly over a mug of coffee or out for a walk. She is married to Richard, and they have a married daughter.
