Canon Mark Standen (Rector)

I’m married to Susan, and we have two children, Lucy (who is studying Physiotherapy at University) and William, who is in his first year studying Law at Nottingham University.

Before ordination, I was a barrister specialising in family law, but decided I would prefer to spend my time helping people to find life through Jesus rather than pursuing a legal career. Fortunately, the Church of England agreed and I was ordained in 1995, serving initially in Sevenoaks and then, since 1999, in Angmering where I have been very happy and felt fulfilled

I enjoy spending my time with family and friends, I love reading, cinemas, walking in the beautiful Sussex countryside and visits to the gym, except after family holidays!
