The Venerable Phil Andrew

The Venerable Phil Andrew has been Archdeacon of Cheltenham since 2017 when he moved to Cheltenham with his wife from Reigate in Surrey, where he was a Church of England Vicar. In his role as one of two Archdeacons within the Diocese of Gloucester, he works 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, he worked for a number of years as a Chartered Engineer, mostly in the UK Water Industry. He is 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 him.
