Being a combined benefice Wiveliscombe and the Hills is led by a single licensed member of the clergy who manages the day to day needs of all the members of the congregation and leads the main services. The priest is then supported by a team of lay readers, lay leaders and retired clergy who help support and lead services. Contact details for the rest of the team can be found here.

"I was baptised, confirmed and married at St Andrews and it has been a huge part of my life. Having been licensed as a lay reader since 2001 and taking various services across the benefice I am very excited that our benefice is a lively and vibrant worshipping community and I look forward to the next 15 years of reader ministry.
Apart from church roles I am an active person - running, walking, cycling, climbing and surfing amongst other things and I feel very blessed to be living in such a beautiful part of the world."
