Town Centre Churches

Meet The Clergy

The Revd Dr. Ian Terry
Team Rector

On 2nd September, 2009, Dr Ian Terry joined the Town Centre Parish as Team Rector.

Ian and his family have been based in Hereford for the past 7 years, where he has been Diocesan Director of Education and Honorary Team Vicar in the West Hereford Team.

His academic research is in Christian Education and children’s spirituality and he is part of the editorial board of the Grove Education series.

For relaxation, Fr Ian plays squash and enjoys fell-walking and the theatre.  He and his wife, Lucinda, are exploring the many leafy lanes and parks of Bournemouth as they walk their bouncy Newfoundland dog, Pippa.

He has worked previously in parochial ministry in Beaconsfield, King’s Lynn and Bisley (Surrey); began his teaching career in Lesotho, Southern Africa; was School Chaplain to Elizabeth College, Guernsey; St John’s School, Leatherhead and St Edmund’s School, Canterbury; he has served as p/t Chaplain to HMP Coldingley.

He is strongly committed to pastoring the whole team, to fostering collaborative ministry and to encouraging the three churches of the Town Centre Parish to work more closely together.
