People in a church

Strategic Programme Board

People & Places is overseen by a Strategic Programme Board under the leadership of Archdeacon Simon. The board meets every month to coordinate the development and implementation workstreams of P&P and liaises with the Bishop’s staff team and other diocesan and parish leaders as necessary. Board members have particular responsibilities in the programme and are also all involved in local churches around the city/region, bringing both contexts to their role. The two places for incumbents to listen and advise the board are in the final stages of recruitment and will be updated here following confirmation. The current makeup of the Board is:

The Ven. Simon Heathfield: Chair, People and Prayer
Ms Liz Dumain: Mission and Ministry Planning Support
Revd Canon Mark PrycePeople Development (training) and support
Mrs Fiona Handscomb: Communications
Mrs Melanie Crooks Finance and Risk Management
Mr Andrew Halstead: Organisation and Support
Dr Jan Smart: People Development (training) and support
Incumbent Consultant 1: Revd Penny Harrison 
Incumbent Consultant 2: Revd Wayne Hamilton
Mr Gary Killeen: P&P Programme Manager
Mr Daniel Mayes: Buildings

The Board is thankful for prayer and support and always interested to receive questions about its work, hear of talents it should include and/or insights about the programme.
