Meet the team

Vicar

Rev Mark Fraser

On a day off Mark might be found out walking in the country, catching a film, cooking for friends or even on the croquet lawn. Mark, Catherine, Joel, Cam and Milly have loved being part of St Luke’s family since September 2008.

Before coming to Nottingham, Mark served as a curate in Bolton and prior to that worked in database marketing for ten years.

Curate

Rev Andy Tufnell

Food, football, films and family… four things that Andy loves, but not necessarily in that order! Andy joined St Luke’s in July 2015, moving to West Bridgford from Cambridge with his wife, Claire, and daughters, Bethany and Grace.

Andy trained as a Physics teacher and has taught in several very different school settings, including in a rural secondary school in western Uganda for nearly two years.

Children & Families Worker

Rev Dud Meese

Dud has been at St Luke’s since 2010 following five years as a Chaplain at Lee Abbey, a holiday and conference centre in North Devon.

When not leading Young Church and Messy Church, Dud enjoys spending time with family, watching films and supporting Doncaster Rovers.

Youth Worker

Tristan

When he’s not planning and running our extensive youth programme, you might find our Youth Worker in the park walking his dog. Otherwise, he might be found debating comic book narratives with fellow experts, rolling dice in a board game, diving into the depths of ancient Chinese war strategy or rocking out to punk rock.

Jean Guest

Mum to Charlie and Tom; lover of all things arty, theatre, galleries, gigs and public lectures. Cricket is a passion and travelling a serious business. I love dancing; have been a member of a book club for 19 years; into local politics and can stir an interest in most things. I’ve been a member at St Luke’s since 2004.

Joanne Pilkington

Originally from Newcastle, Joanne has lived in Nottingham since 1994 with her husband Nick and sons Alexander, Dominic and Elliot, plus a recent new addition of a puppy.

With three boys and a puppy, spare time is pretty limited but would ideally involve eating chocolate (hence the need to take up running!), reading, baking, going for walks in the countryside and, in an attempt to get fit, running… very slowly!

Church Wardens…

As a Church of England church, general oversight is through the PCC (Parochial Church Council).

There are two members of this council who serve as Church Wardens. They share the overall oversight of the ministry and mission of the church with the vicar. Our wardens are Mel Cryer and Maureen Cameron.
