Who's Who

Martin King
Martin King
Vicar
Martin has been vicar at Holy Trinity since 2010. He has degrees in engineering and theology, and has a background in telecommunications and programme management. Before moving to Rudgwick Martin worked on the staff of a Church in Leamington Spa. In addition to being a keen reader, Martin enjoys watching Rugby, DIY, researching his family tree and spending time with his family and friends. He and his wife Shäron have three children.
 

Peter Deaves
Peter Deaves
Curate
Pete is the newest to join the team but grew up only 20 miles away in Bookham, Surrey. Other exciting places Pete has lived include Eastbourne, Tooting and, most recently, Cambridge. He also spent three years in Minsk (Belarus) and Astana (Kazakstan) learning Russian, teaching English and supporting Christian student groups. 
Apart from a short stint in a paper factory, Pete has always worked in Education or alongside families: now he is excited about being Holy Trinity's first Curate (in living memory!)  Cycling is Pete's favourite way of getting around, and he'd love to get better at keeping chickens and ice-skating. Pete and his lovely wife Claire have two delightful, exuberant daughters.

Loyd Harp
Loyd Harp
Youthworker
Loyd has been at Holy Trinity since 2008. He and his family moved from America to Rudgwick in September of that year. He has over 10 years' experience in youthwork, and has a bachelor's degree in Christian Education as well as a Master of Divinity, but as anyone who knows him will tell you, he's a kid at heart!  He is an avid music collector, long distance runner and enjoys anything outdoors!  He and his wife Christy have three children.
 

Jane Thomas

Administrator
Jane is delighted to have joined the team in May 2015. With a degree in Philosophy and postgrad in Publishing, she has a strong background in Sales, Marketing and Training. She and her husband Chris moved to Rowhook in 2006 and since then married at Holy Trinity. They are the very proud parents of three lovely children. Outside of being a mummy and working at CGH, Jane can usually be found getting messy somewhere; whether in the garden, cooking, mucking out chickens or just playing with lots of glue and glitter!

Maeve Filby
Maeve Filby
Churchwarden
Maeve was a Medical Physicist at Guys and St Thomas' Hospital Trust in the Radiotherapy section. She looked after a group of staff who were responsible for maintaining the treatment machines, and assisting the doctors in planning the patients treatments.  She has lived in the village since 1994, and after taking early retirement in 2004 has been involved in many village activities. These include helping the Gardening Association with the village shows and leading a Beaver colony as part of the Rudgwick Scout group.  Her interests include gardening and walking - the West Sussex countryside being a contrast from the Lake District where she spent her earlier years.
