Michael Payne

Tutor in Sacramental Theology and Ministry

“It is good to combine parish ministry with teaching aspects of theology which underpin discussions around priesthood, ministry and service to Christ. St Augustine’s brings together diverse people from a range of backgrounds and it is great to contribute to the formation offered here.”

Michael is Vicar of the parish of St Aidan in Gravesend. Before ordination he has worked in education as a teacher and lecturer. Now, he combines parish ministry with teaching at St Augustine’s. He is also involved in ecumenical and interfaith projects in the Diocese of Rochester and is working to develop an Ignatian New Monastic community, Companions of Christ.
