Today the Bishop of London licensed Rev Alanna Harris as a new Associate Priest for Mission at St Katharine Cree. Alanna has been accompanying the team here for a little while, and undertaking a process of listening to the spiritual needs and interests of workers connected with our growing community. This change means she will now be taking more of a role in shaping the ministry and mission of the church as part of our renewal - although the role is 'non-stipendiary' (unpaid!) and in addition to her other responsibilities elsewhere!

Outside St Katharine Cree, Alanna works as a hospital chaplain in central London and is advising a number of mission organisations on their outreach and leadership development, and also works as a coach with a particular interest in helping leaders navigate transitions.
