Edd is married to Abby and they have been living in Horsley since December 2013. Edd trained as a Children’s and Youth Minister at Oak Hill Theological College and is passionate about seeing young people come to know Jesus and grow in their relationship with God. Edd is pretty convinced that Horsley maybe one of the best places to live in the world …but then again he is biased! He loves to play board games with friends and currently owns over 50+ games! He is also a bit of a movie buff and enjoys water sports, especially SUP boarding.
Abby is married to Edd and they both moved to West Horsley in 2013. Abby has been looking after our communications at St Mary’s since 2015, including our website, social media and church magazine. Prior to this, Abby trained in the Events and Hospitality Industry, specialising in customer service and weddings. She loves to bake and her chocolate tiffin’s are becoming a favourite in Horsley! She also enjoys a good Rom-Com, shopping and eating out!
Pat has been looking after things in our Church Office for over 10 years – a job she finds both pleasantly challenging and rewarding! Prior to this she followed a very successful career in marketing. Pat has lived in Horsley (both East & West) for some 30 years during which time she has been very involved in amateur dramatics, both directing and acting in many productions for the WHIPS – Horsley’s local amdram group. Pat feels privileged to be a part of the St Mary’s church family!
Catherine has worked in our Church office since 2015 and very much enjoys being part of the staff team here at St Mary’s. Catherine grew up in West Horsley but now lives in Ashtead with her 2 teenage daughters. Before working at St Mary’s, Catherine was a nanny/ childminder for over 30 years. She loves to read and also enjoys shopping and spending time with her friends and family.
