Meet our Vicar

We are Chris and Louise Maclay. We have been married for quite a few years and have four lovely daughters (all of whom have left home!) Since getting married (in the South East) we have moved about quite a bit, living in London, Somerset, Reading, Birmingham, Nigeria, Portsmouth, West Sussex, France, and now the lovely Bream! You might guess that we enjoy meeting a wide variety of people, and we love to live in a community that feels like a community.

We are passionate about seeing people meet with God, and we want to see people developing in the way that God always intended for them. We love to work in a team. We have felt really welcomed in Bream by the church and by other community members, so we are looking forward to serving one and all. We look forward to meeting you!
