The Team


Claire loves being vicar here in Hounslow West and is committed to the church being a blessing to the local community and being Christ Centred and Spirit filled.  She loves her wonderful children, puppy Bea, hanging out with friends and family, the theatre, music and travel – oh and Jaffa cakes too!

David (DT)

DT is the curate (for those of you who don’t know what a curate is... google it). He and his wife Vikki moved to Hounslow West in 2019 and they love it! He particularly likes Arsenal, sport in general, music (all of it), whisky, the colour pink and chocolate. He can usually be found with a musical instrument, wearing a hat or with one of his kids (Noah and Grace) in tow. The way to his heart is with a Toblerone.


Chris has been the youth lead in Hounslow West since 2015. He has a passion for providing young people with a safe space to create community, receive support, develop their unique skill sets and experience who Jesus is to them. He is husband to Emily and father to Malakai. He enjoys running, playing football, following Chelsea and Hampton & Richmond Borough and loves Milkybar!
