The Venerable Phil Andrew

I have been Archdeacon of Cheltenham since 2017 when I moved to Cheltenham with my wife from Reigate in Surrey where I was a Church of England Vicar. In my role as one of two Archdeacons within the Diocese of Gloucester, I work closely with the Bishops in helping to oversee all aspects of the mission and ministry of the worshipping communities across the Archdeaconry of Cheltenham (which covers the Eastern half of the Diocese, stretching from the edges of Stratford Upon Avon to Lechlade to Tetbury to Tewkesbury), including schools and chaplaincies. Prior to being ordained I worked for a number of years as a Chartered Engineer, mostly in the UK Water Industry. I am passionate about helping people of all ages reach their God-given potential and Jesus’ offer of ‘life to the full’ in John 10:10 has long been an important verse for me.
