About Us

Meet the team.

Here's a little about us...

Rev'd Alice Wood,

Vicar

01420 472656

Hello - I am Alice (not the white fluffy one, that’s my dog Willow) and I am the Vicar of St. Matthew’s Church, a role which I love. I was ordained in the Church of England in 2012 and served my Curacy in Farlington in the Portsmouth Diocese. Before becoming a Vicar I was Headteacher of a Primary School. I am married to David and have two grown-up daughters, one who is training to be a Vicar. I live in the village of Blackmoor not far from the church. I am fortunate at St Matthew’s to have a great team of people who work with me and love and support our community. Do get in touch if you would like more information about St Matthew’s. My day off is Thursday.

Rev'd Dominic Clarke,

Vicar

Dom is on secondment to set up a new church plant in Bordon called Beacon.

Rev'd Wendy Mallas,

Pastoral Care Team

Hello, I am Wendy, pictured here  with Amelia, the latest addition to my nine grandchildren. I am really fortunate to have a supportive family, especially as my husband died over three years ago.

After my curacy in Liss and two years at St Matthew's, I worked as Garrison Chaplain at REME in Bordon until I retired in 2015. 

Since then, I have worked with Rev'd Alice t St Matthew's, and now lead the Pastoral Care Team. If you would like a visit, or just a chat on the phone, please contact me on 07860 815806. It would be good to hear from you.

Wendy

Sara Hiscock,

Junior church leader

Hello - I am Sarah Hiscock the Junior Church Leader at St Matthew’s. I am married to Ian and have two children of my own who attend Junior Church - which is aimed at children of primary school age and younger if accompanied by their parent. Junior Church meets on the 1st, 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 10am. We take the children over to the village hall for fun, games and some input from the Bible, using material from “The Roots Scheme” which covers the same Bible stories as those in the church but at a level suitable for children. The children then come back into the church for a blessing with their parents and to tell the adults what they have been doing. On the 3rd Sunday at 10am we have a Church Light Service when adults and children are all in together. New children are always welcome.

What else do we do?

Well, quite a lot really! Here's some of it...
