Who's Who


Jude is our Vicar and started with us as our Curate in 2012. Jude and Hannah have 2 children and Jude is known to do the odd Iron Man. They also enjoy ice cream regularly (Jude's favourite flavour is green). Hannah is our student chaplain and is yet to do an iron man.... watch this space.

Ed and Zoƫ

Ed has been our Curate since June 2017 and both he and Zoë are slowly losing their 'Southern-ness'. Ed loves playing cricket for Aigburth CC in his spare time and Zoë enjoys the local Park Run. Be warned: they are both older than they look. 



Kirsty is our operations manager and charity coordinator (also known as our 'Ops Queen'). Kirsty is married to John, an avid Everton supporter; apparently other Merseyside football teams are also available. Attempt to convert their daughter to said team at your peril.




Matt is our Worship Pastor and joined the team in July 2018. Matt is a Scouser but we would advise against asking him which football team he supports. You will really not like the answer. Matt is married to Becky.


Becky started as Families Worker in July 2019 and she also works with our students. Apart from her husband Matt (and Jesus), her other great love is her guinea pigs, which unlike her, are not originally from Liverpool. 




John is one of our student pastors and co-leads our new Wednesday student congregation. He also leads our new Deanery youth service, Burn. For someone working two days a week that could be tricky, but John has so much energy that he has been likened to the Duracell bunny.


Andrew is our other student pastor and also works as an Assistant Chaplain to the universities. He co-leads the Wednesday student congregation with John and loves helping out with Minis too. Andrew has been voted 'Best Hair-do at St James' for the last three years running.




Bryan is one of our churchwardens. Along with his wife, Alwyn, they run an antiquarian bookshop in the city centre. He is able to count to over 100 and is, therefore, entrusted with the job of counting how many people come on a Sunday.


Andy is our other churchwarden and our general 'fix all our problems' man. This used to include looking after our self-composting toilet so no-one was more relieved when we completed our latest building project. If you hear anyone heckling in the service it will be his wife Beej.
