Honorary Chaplain - Fr Tim Handley

Father Tim Handley SSC was appointed Honorary Chaplain to WCoMC in September 2022. He has been Priest-in-Charge of St James Garlickhythe since 2017 and hosted our Annual Services for several years.

He was born in Blackpool in 1963. His father was a hotel manager so the family moved from seaside location to seaside location, eventually moving inland to Reading when he was 10. He read Law at university before leaving to work as a reporter on his local newspaper. He then moved to the BBC, beginning in local radio, before changing to television news. He left the BBC in 1994 to undertake his theological studies in Oxford but after serving in his title parish moved back to the BBC and worked both as a producer/editor and as a non-stipendiary priest in Twickenham, Canterbury, and Shepherd's Bush. In 2017 he left the BBC to move back into full-time ministry at St James Garlickhythe.

Fr Tim has two children: Rebecca and Conor and one grandchild with another on the way. His interests are theology, history, cooking, and his black labrador, Louie.
