Clive Hawkins - Rector

Clive Hawkins

Clive is married to Cathy, a Speech & Language Therapist, and they have four grown up children who are also part of the church. He particularly likes explaining the Christian worldview to those who are seeking answers or are sceptical. He read theology at St Peter's College, Oxford University, then went into NHS management before training for ordination at Trinity College, Bristol.

After a few years of speaking at Spring Harvest, he was one of those with the idea to start Word Alive. Clive is an Honorary Canon at Winchester Cathedral, has served on the Bishop's Council and as an Area Dean, and has been a member of General Synod.

He has recently had to retire from playing football after breaking his leg!
