Who we are

  • Fr Simon Cuff

    Vicar

     

    “I’m Fr Simon Cuff, Vicar here at St Peter’s. I’m passionate about social justice & vibrant celebrations of the Eucharist as the heart of our parish life. I was baptised in Heathrow Airport chapel as a baby and many years later was involved in the campaign for a Living Wage there!”

    Assistant Curate

     

    (Mondays, Saturdays, Sundays)

    “I am delighted at the prospect of serving a curacy at St Peter de Beauvoir Town. I despise, speak out against, and try to mitigate societal injustices particularly in relation to minoritised groups. Singing and listening to music is a big part of my life. I also enjoy art and Tate Modern is my happy place. Cultivating an ever-deepening spirituality is of utmost importance to me. I very much look forward to meeting you all!”

  • Simon Perfect

    Ordinand

     

    I’m Simon! I’m an ordinand (training to be a vicar). I’m enjoying learning ‘on the job’ as part of the brilliant St Peter’s community. Previously I was a researcher at Theos, a religion and society thinktank, and a tutor at SOAS, University of London. I’m happiest when singing loudly, wearing silly costumes or watching The Simpsons (preferably all at once).

  • Amanda Monaghan

    Churchwarden

    My name is Amanda and I have lived in and around De Beauvoir for many years.  I first started attending St Peter’s in 2013 and worshipping here has helped me plant deeper roots in the local community and strengthen my personal faith.  The church itself is a place of great peace and beauty and the church family is warm, welcoming and most importantly active in its support of members of the local community and the wider world.

  • Amanda Bart-Plange

    Churchwarden and Pastoral Assistant

     

    “I’m Amanda and have been attending St Peter’s for 13 years and have been Pastoral Assistant for the last 7. I enjoy serving on the welcome team and administering Holy Communion. I am passionate about the well-being of people, especially the young and the elderly. St Peter’s has given me a lot in terms of spiritual growth, confident, support and enjoy the way of worship and interaction across the congregation.”

I’ve served on the PCC several times, helped with Noisy Church and the Young People’s Group, led Lent Groups and helped to run the winter Night Shelter.  I value the quiet spirituality of St Peter’s and am optimistic about increasing its presence amongst the local community. I work at Whittington Health, and in my free time enjoy reading, walking (I have just started to walk the Thames Path!), music (70s prog rock) and the pub quiz.  I am married to Andrew and am pictured here with son Chris, who grew up in de Beauvoir and now lives with his wife Natalie in Bath.”

    “Hi! I’m Debby and am one of the regular stewards for occasions in the church and crypt, and help lead our Warm Welcome project on a Wednesday. Outside of St Peters I might be seen walking my foster cat Sammy along Lawford Road on a harness : it’s a great way of getting to know my neighbours and chatting to passers by. I also run a business as a 1:1 Diet Consultant and help people (many local) reach a happier and healthier weight.”
