Revd Canon Chris & Revd Sandra Tebbutt
Chris is the Rector of the Parish Church and heads the Leadership Team. Sandra is an Associate Priest in the parish and also works on the national team at Bible Society. They are passionate about seeing the church grow and therefore fully embrace the church's vision: growing the Kingdom, growing disciples.
Revd Jean Audibert
Jean Audibert is curate at both Canford and Christchurch Creekmoor so he spreads his time between the two parishes. Jean's background is in mental health nursing and brings with him a wealth of experience in pastoral care.
He also originates from France and so has impeccable taste in clothes, rugby, food and wine.
Churchwardens Mrs Jane Hazell, Mrs Sandra Webster
Family Life Co-ordinator Mrs Sharon Cooksley
Sharon is our Family Life Coordinator. She has been involved in children's work here at the Parish Church since 2004, although has worshipped within the parish since she was 10 years old. As her own family are grown (but not yet flown the nest!) she loves the opportunity to engage with families and children of all ages in both community and church settings. Sharon is married to Ken, and enjoys reading, gardening and good historical dramas.
Parish Church Secretary Mrs Carrie Partridge
Carrie has been the Parish Secretary and the Rector’s Personal Assistant since 2015.
She also assists Rev Andrew Rowland as Rural Dean of the Wimborne Deanery. Carrie enjoys playing hockey with Wimborne Wayfarers and is a member of the Broadstone Community Band.
Canford is blessed with a very active team of retired ministers who also lead a number of the church's ministries
