Our Team

We are a small team of dedicated people who aim to show God's love for the world by making St John's as welcoming as possible and by serving the needs of those around us.


Our Priest-in-Charge is The Rev'd Sarah Jones. Sarah joined us in October 2018 having previously been the Rector of the Benefice of Ross with Walford and Brampton Abbotts in the diocese of Hereford.

Sarah was ordained in 2004 having had a career in the music business and commerce and in sales and management training.

Lorna Hanney is in her final year at theological college and is on placement with us at St John's from January to June 2018.

Lorna has a strong background in social justice work and we are delighted to have her with us. Lorna will usually be with us on Sundays and Mondays.


Rachel is our administrator. She is responsible for our office and is often the first point of contact for enquiries about St John's.

Rachel works on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings and she is usually in the office on Tuesday afternoons. You can e mail her


Evan Chapman and Ruth Livingstone are our Churchwardens. Like most Churchwardens they get through a tremendous amount of work and are very important members of our leadership team.

They provide an important link between the congregation and the clergy and they also have legal responsibilities for the running of the parish.


The Rev'd Meg Underdown is Assistant Priest in the parish of Cathays. However she enjoys St John's so much that for many years she has been present on most Thursday afternoons between 12.30pm and 2pm for listening, counsel and prayer. We are blessed by having Rev'd Meg as a chaplain in St John's.


The Rev'd Rhian Linecar is our Assistant Curate. Rhian is a fluent Welsh speaker and is therefore able to fulfill her passion for City Centre ministry by serving both at St John’s and at Cardiff’s Welsh speaking Anglican Church, Eglwys Dewi Sant. We are delighted Rhian is part of our team.
