Licensed Lay Minister
Canon Judy Anderson
A key figure in the life of St John’s is Canon Judy Anderson, our Licensed Lay Minister and Parish Administrator. On Sundays Judy is often elsewhere in the Valley taking services. From time to time she leads prayers and preaches at St John’s. During the week she works behind the scenes as our part-time Administrator. This is a varied role which includes leading the work of the Parish Office, keeping the church diary and many other aspects of running a busy country parish Church.
Further afield, in the Salisbury Diocese she is the Associate Warden of Licensed Lay Ministers (LLMs), working with the Bishop of Sherborne to look after the LLMs of the diocese. She is a member of the Pray Forum and the Learning for Discipleship and Ministry Council as well as the Lay Ministry Support Group and the LLM Development Group.
On top of all the she is studying for an MA in Christian Liturgy at Sarum College.
