Rector, Vicar and Priest-in-charge

Rev Hannah Moore

I am Rev Hannah Moore, I was born in Bedfordshire but moved to South Africa as a child in 1979 and remained there for 23 years. I qualified as a teacher and taught primary school for a few years before leaving to work on a titanium mining project as a Cost Controls Manager. On my return to England in 2002, I lived in Fleet with husband Michael, and our children Rachael and Reuben.

We attended The Church on Heath and I became involved in leading holiday clubs, playing in the worship group and eventually leading and preaching at services. During this time, I set up a business with my sister and my mum offering afterschool art and craft clubs in schools in Surrey and Hampshire. I ran this business for fourteen years before being ordained.

I undertook my theological training at St Mellitus College in London. During my training, I worked at the Parish of Fleet as a Children and Families Worker and Church on the Heath as a Minister in Training. I have served my curacy in the Parish of Badshot Lea and Hale in the churches of St George’s, St John’s and St Mark’s. I have enjoyed being part of the community in North Farnham for the last three and half years.

As a family, Michael, Rachael, Reuben and I are enjoying our move to Elstead. I am excited to share my ministry in the Parishes of Elstead, Thursley, Shackleford and Peper Harow. We had a real sense that God was calling us to these parishes for the next season of my ministry. I want to be able to share my faith by living it out and I am inspired to action by the words of the prayer after Communion which calls us to be a “living sacrifice” and “to live and work for God’s praise and glory.”

When I am not working, I love spending time with my family playing cards and board games and watching DVDs. Holidays are an important time for us all to catch up as a family as Michael is a teacher, Rachael works as a special educational needs assistant in a school and Reuben is just about to complete his GCSEs. We are a family of animal lovers so you may see us around walking our two miniature Dachshunds and our Springer/Clumber cross Spaniel. We also have three cats, a fish tank of tropical fish and a fishpond.

Apart from spending time with my family I love reading, doing jigsaw puzzles, making scale wooden models of boats, often getting my fingers stuck together with superglue. I enjoy watching all kinds of sport on television. I am a life-long Liverpool supporter, so I keep a weekly check on the scores and am very happy this season! I am passionate about cricket, supporting England’s men and women, and watch it whenever I get the chance.

I am looking forward to getting to know you and seeing you at the churches and out and about in the community.
