Meet some of the team
Here's a little about us...
What else do we do?
Well, quite a lot really! Here's some of it...
I am with you and will watch over you.
Rev'd Alice Wood,
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 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 a few 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 at 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.
Junior church leader
Hello - I am Sara Hiscock the Junior Church Leader at St Matthew’s. I have two children of my own, Lucia who attends Oakmoor and Ryan who attends St Matthew's School. I work as a Teaching Assistant and Pastoral Care Team at Oakmoor secondary school in Bordon.
Junior Church is aimed at children of primary school age and younger if accompanied by their parent. We meet on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sundays of the month at 10am. We take the children to the village hall for fun, games and Bible stories, then bring them back before the end of the service for a blessing at the Altar with their parents. On the 3rd Sunday of the month Junior Church is led by our vicar Alice, whilst Rev'd Wendy leads the service in church.
On the 4th Sunday of the month the children stay in the service with their parents.
Newcomers are always welcome.
