Meet the Chair of Trustees (and alumni): Jonathan

Under Meet the alumni, Meet the trustees,

The Revd Jonathan Croucher is Vicar at Christ Church Gipsy Hill in London, and Area Dean of Lambeth South in the Diocese of Southwark. He has been on the Board of Trustees for St Augustine’s College of Theology since 2013, and is the current Chair. We talked to him about his role. My career began in the law, and I became partner specialising in employment law in the City law firm which I joined after graduating from University. I’d been exploring my call to ordained ministry since I was 18, though, and in 2000 went…

I’m a life-long Lutheran; my father was a minister in the Lutheran Church in the US. There are no Lutheran seminaries here in the UK, so when my church here called me to discernment I could choose any college I liked. I knew…

Meet the curate: Alex

Under Meet the alumni,

Alex is a former student at St Augustine’s, and is currently non-stipendiary curate at St Giles Cripplegate, in the City of London. We asked him to tell us a bit about what life is like as a curate, and how his experience at St Augustine’s helped to prepare him.  As well as my curacy work, I work full-time for the digital team of the Church of England.

Emma Ham-Riche, Assistant Curate in Chichester Diocese

Under Meet the alumni,

‘We are becoming a very different sort of Church. And that’s our challenge right now, to become a different sort of Church. A challenge I feel equipped to face because I trained at St Augustine’s, because St Augustine’s encourages its students to find different ways to look at things and different ways to do things. You will get the opportunity not only to explore the length, height, breadth and width of God’s love, but also the opportunity to explore the length, height, breadth and width of the Church of England as well. It will be…
