Archdeacon Jonathan’s role covers all of mid Essex, stretching from Maldon and the Denge peninsular to Epping and Ongar, including Brentwood and Chelmsford. He is an Essex boy, educated in Southend. Prior to the announcement of his appointment last summer, he had for twenty year been the Vicar in Gipsy Hill, south London. Before ordination, and for a while afterwards, he worked as a partner and then COO of a European Law firm, Taylor Wessing LLP. He spoke of the church as being the place where everyone is welcome, everyone is equal and all  should be seeking to be more like Jesus.
