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.
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 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.
Ness joined the St Clement's team in September 2015 as Communities Pastor. She works part-time here while studying theology part-time at St Mellitus College, as her training for ordained ministry. St Clement's has always had close links with and a desire to serve the local community, and Ness is enjoying supporting the church in this. She has a particular focus on the running of our Cafe Church and Enquirers' course, connecting with the wider community, and enjoys being involved with Cafe Club and Toddlers.
She is married to James, a teacher, and has 2 lovely daughters (she may be biased here!) She loves a good chat over coffee, messing about in boats and curling up with a good book!
Heather has been parish administrator at St Clement's for 3 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 an adult daughter.
