Here is a bit about our staff team and other key leaders:
Rev David Hammond
David is usually talking, or firing off a new idea, some of which are quite good…
Being a husband and Dad of a busy and lively family is priority as is making sure there’s always time to stop and be still with God. Being outdoors in the garden is a major recharge activity as is time with friends and family usually discussing ideas/sport/church/whatever over good meaty food, and good cheese and spirits.
David has a passion to see his city and nation changed in his life time, to upgrade the armour of every believer who’ll let him and to entrepreneur the heck out of anything he can.
Spare moments are for novels, to read and dream of writing…
Caroline is married to David (but please don’t call her the vicar’s wife ;). They have 3 fun children and enjoy squashing as many people as possible into their very extroverted family home. Her call to leadership brought her out of music and mentoring into the church where she loves to invest in people and encourages those around her to connect with God. She loves catching up with close friends over a decent flat white, Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, beautiful places, exercise and chilling with God and all things sweet, (maybe because of her name…sweet Caroline).
Stevey is part of the leadership team with particular responsibility over ‘making stuff happen’. She’s in charge of all things Operations… Stevey is a huge fan of details and planning, and loves helping people’s dreams and visions come to life.
Stevey is an introvert who loves living in community. Coffee is one of her favourite things – drinking it, making it or just talking about it… If you have any coffee shop recommendations do let her know!
Jen Farrell joined the team in Summer 2018 as our student worker and Form Leader. She recently graduated from Leicester University. As an Acceler8 worker she is paid for by the diocese.
YOUTH AND KIDS LEADER:
Kat joined the team in January 2018 as our new Youth and Kids Leader. Prior to this, she had been a teacher, but felt God calling her into working with children and young people in a different way. Kat loves running, crafting, sewing and drinking coffee. She has been part of the Westwood church family since she was a student at Warwick University (which is longer ago that she would like to admit!). 2018 is an exciting year for Kat with a new job, getting married and moving house!
Ruach Mitchell is currently studying applied theology at St John’s Nottingham. He is our students and youth intern, and is also leading Form.
Stuart joined the team in August 2017. He takes care of all the church’s finance. He is married to Rebecca and they have three children.
OFFICE ADMINISTRATOR AND FORM LEADER:
John joined the team in Summer 2018 as office administrator, David Hammond’s PA and Form Leader. He has been part of the church since 2008 with his wife Becky and, more recently, his son Rupert. He also leads the Sozo ministry across Westwood Church.
