Leadership Team


Revd Dr Steve Green - Vicar

Following a short spell in the army and then selling typewriters, Steve has spent most of his life in education.  He had been the head teacher of two schools before becoming an Ofsted inspector and then director of education.  He felt called to be ordained in the Church of England in 2018 and did his theological training in Guildford.  Steve was a curate at St Mary's in West Horsley before being installed as vicar of St James in April 2024.  Apart from his family, Steve loves all sports although he doesn't profess to be particularly good at any of them.  He supports Plymouth Argyle which keeps him humble. He also likes motorcyles.  His passion is for everyone in the parish to come to know Jesus.
