Staff and Leadership

Please find below an introduction to our church leaders and staff members. Brace yourself...
Steve   Fabian
Steve Coneys - Vicar   Fabian Wuyts - Team Curate
Steve has been the Vicar of St Alphege, Seasalter, for over 20 years now. He’s also the Team Rector of the Whitstable Team Ministry. He has a passion for God’s Church fulfilling its purpose and potential.
When not working he is often found in the coffee shops of Whitstable with his wife Vicky. He follows 2 football teams, Liverpool and Blackpool (in that order). His music of choice is pre-1980s Genesis (the ‘proper stuff’), although he is recently enjoying a band called Khruangbin (no, really).
  Fabian has been the Curate here since May 2014. He is married to Vashti and has 4 children.

He loves good music, and he himself plays several musical instruments. He has also recently enjoyed the TV series Mr. Robot. He claims that he once served royalty at Pizza Hut…
Jane   Georgina
Jane Myhill - Children and Families Minister
  Georgina Hedley-Smith - Youth Minister
Jane has worked for St Alphege, Seasalter, in different capacities for almost 10 years now. Starting off as an administrator for the Christian Centre, her job has evolved and she is now our full time Children and Families Minister.

She is married to David and has two kids, Ollie and Lucy. They have two dogs, Mollie and Fender. Apparently Fender is named after the guitar, as it will be the closest thing to Jane's husband ever owning a real one!
  For the past 3 years Georgina has served as the Youth Minister for St Alphege, Seasalter. She’s crafty! (in a good way) She loves using her scrollsaw to make jigsaws, reindeer, crosses, plaques, names etc.
Her house is a bit of zoo as her family love animals – her most recent addition is a marine fish tank. She has enjoyed building up the number of fish and coral and watching the anemones who move themselves around the tank.
Dan   No Photo icon
Dan Ralph - Youth Worker, SCC Administator & Digital Coordinator
  Becky Whitakker - SCC Administrator
Dan has worked for St Alphege, Seasalter, for over 2 years. He first began with the Youth Worker role but has managed to add a couple of other roles on too – busy guy!
He is married to Natalie and they have an awesome little boy called Jonah. He is a lifelong fan of Tottenham Hotspur (for better or worse). He loves watching films and is a self professed film nerd. He is passionate about worshipping God and loves finding great new Christian music for the church to sing. He loves being creative and enjoys graphic design.
  Becky, along with Dan, oversees the adminstration of Seasalter Christian Centre - the home of St Alphege, Seasalter. She started the job in June 2016. She is married to Mark and they have two children, Owen and Beth.

Becky also loves animals and basically lives in a Zoo. Her family have 3 Guinea pigs, 7 Rabbits, 1 Hamster and 2 dogs.
Tom   Denise
Tom Houston - Intern
  Denise Critchell - Pastor for Healing and Wholeness
Having started in September 2016, Tom is spending a year voluntarily as an Intern at St Alphege. He is also doing the New Wine discipleship year too.
He is a Chelsea fan so he's had a lesson in humility in recent times. He loves reading his Bible and his favourite song at the moment Bethel’s No Longer Slaves.
His facial hair is the most interesting thing about him and he claims that he gets 'lots of compliments' about it each and every day. 
  For over 2 years Denise has been the Leader of the Healing Ministry Team. She loves to help people to know the peace, wholeness and healing that we can find in Jesus.
She is passionate about God, her husband, and about Art (She has artwork up in the church!). She also loves the colour pink.
Tobi   Chris
Tobi Osinaike - Prayer Pastor
  Chris Skingley - Pastor to the Third Age
Tobi has been the Prayer Pastor here at St Alphege since February 2016, which is great because one of his biggest passions is praying and seeing God move. He also loves reading and studying the Bible.

Once upon a time he had ambitions to be a professional footballer, whilst this never happened, he still enjoys a kickabout!
  Chris has recently taken up the role of Pastor to the Third Age, that’s helping people who are at the higher end of the age spectrum.
Born and bred in Essex, he says that Kent has a calming effect on him. He loves walking through and enjoying the Kent countryside. He enjoys watching ‘Bake Off and likes cooking, although he’s not into the exotic cakes and bakes.
