Visiting Preachers

Our most regular preachers are members of the Clergy and Licensed Reader team at the Abbey.  Visiting preachers are a regular feature of our Sunday worship, a few of those we have enjoyed are featured below.



Andrew Doarks

Andrew Doarks is a training curate at St Luke, Brislington in Bristol. He read Economics at Bristol and graduated from Leicester with a Masters in Information Technology. Whilst he was still studying, the Holy Spirit fanned the flames of his faith and brought him into a deeper relationship with Jesus. Family life and contract work as an IT developer afforded many opportunities to apply his faith, both in Cambridge, London and Amsterdam. However, he eventually became frustrated that secular work was preventing him fulfilling the person God was calling him to become. Specifically, God confirmed that it was time to shift emphasis and to concentrate on building His house. Andrew trained for ministry at St Mellitus theological college in London. He is married to Kate and they have two teenage daughters


Louise Adey Huish

Louise Adey Huish has been passionate about the written word since the age of eleven. She trained initially as a Modern Linguist, and between 1985 and 2002 worked as a university teacher of German and a professional translator (Freud, Schleiermacher). She was ordained in 2004, served her title at St Mary’s Banbury, and since 2007 has worked in healthcare chaplaincy, most recently as a hospice chaplain in Warwick. Her particular interest at present is in the interrelatedness of body, mind and spirit.


Jason Royce

Jason Royce is a youth worker with over 12 years experience within local authorities, schools, churches, and community settings. During that time he has spoken widely to many different audiences about the needs of young people in today's society.
