Friendly Faces in Barley Hill Church 

Please find below an introduction to some of the people you may see around church.
 
Rev Rachel Cross
  Debs Salisbury
Our Vicar - Rachel Cross    Church Administrator and PCC Secretary - Debs Salisbury 
Rachel is married to Simon and they have 2 adults sons; Ben and Theo.

Rachel has been Vicar at Barley Hill, Thame and St Catherine’s, Towersey since 2014. Before ordination she was an Intensive Care Nurse for 10 years.
 
  I am happiest pottering in our garden and kitchen, drinking coffee or wine with family and friends. When not working to keep church life organised and running smoothly, you will find me, together with Phil, trying to ‘keep the show on the road’ at home with our three boisterous young children.

Having moved from London to Thame, we joined Barley Hill Church in 2017 looking for a relaxed and friendly Church – and haven’t been disappointed.

When they chose to come to here, the generous welcome and kindness of the broad family of the church had a lot to do with it.
