Sam has been an Anglican Vicar since 2011 and in September 2018 was appointed alongside his wife, Anna, as Lead Ministers for Barking Riverside. He and Anna are committed to seeing this community and every person in it become all that they can be and are commissioned to plant a new Anglican worshipping community here. George Carey is right at the heart of this and Sam is privileged to serve in seeing this continue to be a place where pupils, staff, and families thrive.
Previously Sam spent 7 years serving St Mary’s Church, Loughton, as well as being Hub Director for Westminster Theological Centre (an innovative higher education institution) and is currently completing a PhD in Theology. Sam and Anna have been married for 10 years and have two pre-school children – Leo and Cora.
