Mother Samantha Martell – Vicar

Married to my best friend with twins (now 21), I’m an Anglo-Catholic Priest passionate about social justice and the ministry of presence.
I was a pig farmer and butcher in a previous life and I buy far more books than I can read!
I am currently working on my dissertation for a Masters in Theology. 
I am the Vocations Officer for the Society of Catholic Priests, on the board for the Hampshire and the Islands Historic Churches Trust, Diocesan Convenor for the inclusive Christian movement MoSAIC, and Co-chair for the Diocesan Anna Chaplaincy initiative.

Steven Smart – Children, Youth & Families Minister

I have been a part of the parish for almost 15 years, served as churchwarden, treasurer and Parish Operations Manager before taking on the exciting role of Children, Youth & Families Minister working across Bridgemary & Elson.
