Robert Morgan


I have combined parish, hospital and prison ministry with university and college teaching of the New Testament and Christian doctrine, mainly in Oxford.   At St Andrew's I have enjoyed getting to know many people in Sandford over a long period, praising God and leading a happy team of volunteers.

Teresa Morgan

Associate Priest

Liz Shatford

Ministry team

I have served the parishes of Sandford and Littlemore since 2002 as a non-stipendiary priest, while teaching Greek and Roman history at Oxford University.  My poetry has appeared in many collections, and in Seasons of the Spirit (2010), reflections on the parish year.  In my spare time I enjoy playing the viola, walking, reading, and listening to Test Match Special. 

I qualified as an architect and then urban designer and, since retiring early from working at Oxford City Council, I retrained as a domiciliary podiatrist, trained as a Lay Minister, and served as Sandford's parish clerk for twenty years.   I

have written on Sandford  local history and am very concerned about environmental issues.

After some 40 years teaching in state secondary schools I and my late wife retired to Sandford in 1979 and joined the St Andrew's congregation, serving as Church Warden for the past three years.

I work as a social worker in Oxford and around,  and brought up my family in Broadhurst Gardens, where Paul and I and Sian now live.

Mick Hills

Deputy Warden

After a spell as Church Warden and on Synod my main responsibilities at St Andrew's are acting as Assistant Warden, looking after the churchyard (help always gratefully received!) and ringing the bells.

Christian Bradley


A physicist/engineer by profession, I have from a young age been equally absorbed by singing and latterly (nearly two decades) by directing music at St Andrews - with a particular interest in voice production.   I am supported by my scientific and musical family both as singers and as audience!

Sue Bradshaw


A career in nursing included managing a care home in Sandford.  Retirement allowed me to become Church Warden for a spell and to continue with practical tasks in St Andrew's.

Anne Pitson

Deputy Warden

For many years my husband Martin was organist at St Andrew's, and I have been involved with the church in many ways since our marriage in 1964,  as Church and Deputy Warden, and also in organising the Flower team and the annual Flower Festival.   I have been very involved with the Sandford Talking Shop cafe, and enjoy cooking and craftwork.

Isobel Wilson


Having trained and worked as a lawyer I am now employed at Oxfam and enjoy singing in St Andrew's choir as well as managing its finances.
