Welcome to Katy Thomson

We are over the moon to welcome Katy as our brand new and FIRST ever parish administrative assistant.  Katy will be helping all of us, especially Mother Ruth, get more done.  She will be in the church office on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings most weeks and will, of course, also be contactable by phone on 020 8675 8094 and email at office@holyspirit-clapham.org.uk .  

Do pop in to meet her if you are passing. Everyone will get an opportunity to say hello and make her feel at home next month when we will be commissioning her and asking God to bless her in her work during the main parish eucharist.

Katy is originally from farming-country on the East Coast of Scotland (just South of Edinburgh):  

I studied Music at Durham University. I fell in love with London during my gap year when I worked at St. Paul's Cathedral School. I used to work as an Events Manager for an education charity but wanted to find part time work to allow more time to pursue my passion for singing. Currently I'm learning German in my spare time and trying to remember how to play the piano...! 

Loves: Music, Sailing, long beach walks, dark chocolate and a good single malt

Favourite hymn: Coe Fen (I think the first line is 'how great a being, Lord, is thine...')

Not so fond of.... Cats (allergic!) 

I really wanted to work at CHS because it is such a beautiful building- a little oasis of calm in a very busy city. Also, it is the people that make a place, and everyone seemed lovely so I wanted to become part of the team!
