We are thankful to God for having a number of people who are able to focus their time on serving Christ and our church family here in Chelsea.

Sam and Alice Ashton
Sam joined St Andrew's in 2015 as our Curate. Sam is married to Alice. They met whilst studying at theological college. Sam's main responsibilites are working with children and young adults. Among other things, Alice oversees FAB Club, run for 5-11s on Friday afternoons.

Church Council (PCC) members
The Parochial Church Council (PCC) oversees the running of the Parish. It is responsible for maintaining buildings, organising finances and supporting the vicar in reaching the local area with the good news of Jesus. Our PCC contains members of both St. John's, our sister church, and St. Andrew's. Below are the members from St Andrew's.
Barbara is married to James. They have two grown-up children who live with their families in Bristol. The Sherwoods have served the Lord over many years in Africa with a focus on encouraging church pastors in their ministry.
Nick is married to Lucy and father to two daughters. He brings a wealth of business acumen to PCC meetings and is a core member of our church family.
Olga spent many years working in social work. She has been a faithful member of St Andrew's for many years - previously serving as Church Warden - and is much loved by our Church family.
