Associate priest

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.
