The Bexley Team ministry was originally formed in 2012 and included the two Anglican churches in Bexley Village - St John the Evangelist, and St Mary’s. This has been a success and in August 2018 the Team was expanded to include the neighbouring parishes of Joyden’s Wood, and North Cray.
Having been responsible for the parish of Joyden’s Wood since 2011 and the additional parish of North Cray since 2015, Reverend Ren Harding was appointed as Team Rector in November 2018.
The Team clergy are Reverend Clive Wood, Reverend Sue Twynam, and Reverend Edward Barlow.
Each of the four parishes remain a ‘parish distinct’ but we work together as a Team.

This Sunday begins my first week working with the Bexley Team. After spending the last three years at theological college my family and I are so thrilled to be joining you all here. I’ll be spending the first few months as a licensed lay minister before being ordained a deacon at the end of September.
I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible over the coming weeks and months and am keen to get to know each church community within the team. In a distant meeting before the current pandemic affected our lives in the ways that it currently does, the plan for my first few months in Bexley was to try and get to know each church community. Whilst our church buildings are now beginning to reopen, the weekly rhythm of activities will no doubt take longer to return to normal.
So in an attempt to get to know as many people as I can, it would be great to make contact with anybody who wanted to. This could be done by you writing me either an email or a letter. It doesn’t necessarily have to be anything profound or lengthy, just a note to say ‘hello’ and to tell me a bit about yourself. Perhaps you could mention which church you normally would attend and something you love about that church? You could tell me a bit about yourself and perhaps something that I could be praying about with you.
If you’d like to make contact you can do so via any of the following:
Email - mattho[email protected]
Address - St Mary’s Vicarage, 29 Hill Crescent, Bexley, DA5 2DA
Mobile telephone - 07889873125
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
