Local Leadership

St Mary the Virgin, Ashford town centre has a parish priest whose time is divided equally between the church and Ashford School as their chaplain. Two Local Wardens work closely with the priest along with other members of the Local Leadership Team (LLT), which meets quarterly to review, plan and lead the work of the church community in fulfilling its local ministry and mission. Members of the LLT form the Standing Committee to support the priest with urgent matters. The Ashford Town Parish Parochial Church Council (PCC) has overall responsibility under the leadership of our Team Rector, Reverend Canon Dr Jeremy Worthen.
