Fr. Graham Whiting
All of my ministry has been served in the Dioceses of Chichester and Winchester. Most recently, I served as Vicar of All Saints Findon Valley with St Peter’s High Salvington for over 12 years.
I have been an Associate of an Anglican religious order, The Community of the Servants of the Will of God based at Crawley Down, West Sussex, for 30 years. I have now been Parish Priest here for 16 months, and am putting into practice our Parish Profile vision: ‘Attending to God’, ‘Building Christian Community’ and ‘Commending God’s Love to the World’. I pray that people viewing this site will capture the vision and join our Church community.
Colin Glue has been a regular member of St.Andrews family since 1983 when he and his family started attending church in Hamble. He has been a teacher and a postman and loves spending time with his family and gardening - he is currently looking after three gardens - and often works in the churchyard and cloister garden at St.Andrews - occasionally "helped" by one of his grandchildren! You may often see him walking his black labrador around the village - he is always ready for a chat.
Moved here in December 2018 but have known Hamble village since I was a youngster. My Father was skipper of a tanker operating out of Hamble installation and I spent time with him aboard her in the school holidays. I grew up in Peartree Southampton, singing in the choir there from 7 years of age until 2000. Ex Artificer Royal Navy, my professions have been technical and educational. I was D&T Technician at Woolston school and later at Winchester College. Licensed as Reader in Bath and Wells in 2002 and as Lay Minister at St Andrew's in November 2019.
