Meet the Team
Andy is married to Mary and they have 4 adult children. He has been Vicar of Christ Church since September 2017 and is excited about what God is doing in this part of North London. He loves all sport - especially cricket (still plays!) and football (still supports Portsmouth FC) - loves most types of music but struggles to understand gardening.
James is married to Michele and Dad to Talitha and Reuben. He’s a Guernsey boy who loves sailing, fishing and being outdoors, and is always on the lookout for some new hobbies here in Barnet (suggestions welcome!). James loves being a part of CCB and is excited about Jesus doing great things in and through us all as a church.
Julie is married to Paul and has 4 children - Jake, Maisie, Poppy and William. She’s a Northerner, studied nursing in Chester and has lived in London since 2001.
Julie loves being crafty (making stuff!), watching a good drama or reading (if her kids allow), but struggles to find a decent brew this far south.
Ben grew up on the South Coast, studied Maths at Southampton Uni, and has loved visiting many different countries on short-term mission trips. In his spare time he likes running, techie stuff and playing the guitar.
McKayla was born in America, then moved to Canada, so likes to think of herself as ‘a bit of both’. Having just left school, she is on the New Wine Discipleship Year course and her focus here at CCB is Youth and Worship. She loves fluffy cats, exploring London and watching cheesy rom-com movies.
Julian was licensed on 15th September 2012, becoming the first lay reader at Christ Church for more than a decade. He has been in the media all his working life, including almost a quarter of a century with a national newspaper group, and now runs his own business as a publishing consultant. He is married to Carol and has two children, Simon and Jennifer. Julian is also a Church warden as he doesn’t have anything else to do!

Ian is the premises manager for Christ Church which means he handles the booking of all our rooms, however in addition to this he is our ‘go to’ man for when we have a practical problem! He helps to mend, fix, carry and can usually resolve all the everyday niggles! Ian is married to Kay with two grown up sons, loves sport in particular football, and to quote Ian, “That great North London club, Spurs!”

Peter has been a teacher for many years and was a Secondary School Head Teacher when he was ordained in 1982 as a non-stipendiary minister. Peter is a member and Chaplain of the Magic Circle. This sometimes overspills into Peter's sermons as he has been known to throw in the odd surprise to assist with his teachings. He has two adult sons and four grandchildren. Together with his wife Sylvia, Peter led numerous expeditions of Christ Church members to the Holy Land and followed in the steps of St. Paul! Peter was a magistrate for many years.
