Who are we?

Rev Kia Pakenham

Rector of Abinger, Coldharbour, Wotton and Holmbury St Mary, with specific responsibility for Abinger and Coldharbour.

Rev David Grundy

Associate Minister

“We moved to Holmbury St. Mary in November 2019, just before Covid struck. We love the area, and I am a great believer in the importance of rural ministry and the opportunities that go with it. Before coming here,  Judith was a vicar in a rural Benefice in Norfolk, while I was a language teacher in Cambridge and the Far East. Prior to that I’d been vicar in a group of parishes in north west Norfolk – quite a different world from the Surrey Hills.”
