Team Priest: The Revd. Ann Fraser

Revd. Ann Fraser

Ann has been in the parish since 2001.

Ann and her husband, Richard, moved here from Thames Ditton from the house where they had raised their 6 children.

Ann trained as a nurse and worked at the Home of Compassion - a Nursing Home in Thames Ditton, for many years and then became a Trustee there until it closed a few years ago. She also worked for the local health authority in Family Planning.

Ann spent a number of happy years in the Guide Movement as Guider and Commissioner and in the Trefoil Guild. In 1995 she became President of the Mothers Union for Guildford Diocese for 6 years and followed that with 6 years as a General Trustee for the Mothers Union. This world-wide position was a challenging and exciting time giving Ann a wide vision of the needs and cares in the world, while being concerned at All Saints with local and parish needs.

Ann is fully involved in the parish. She is Chair of Governors of Chandler School and leads assemblies there and at Witley Infant School.

For relaxation Ann enjoys spending time with her large family, including twelve grandchildren.


We have an excellent team at All Saints.

The centre of all that happens is the Office where Debbie Partridge, our Parish Administrator, can be found Monday and Friday. Debbie has been in administration all her working life. She will be able to help with any questions about forthcoming events, occasional offices, magazine advertising and much more. Ring the bell at the playground gate opposite the church when she's there, or ring 01428 681872, or email office@allsaintswitley.org.uk

Along with the clergy (Ann Fraser), we have elected senior lay people who serve as churchwardens: Elvie Carpenter and Brenda Rounce.

The governing body of the church is called the Parochial Church Council (PCC) and comprises of the following elected members: Richard Bacon, Sally Crathern, Richard Fraser, Ruth Gill, Janet Ingram, Rebecca Latham, Iain Nisbet, Phillip Parrott, Debbie Partridge (Secretary), Scott Pepe, and Viv Wright (Treasurer).

Assisting the clergy with their ministry are our Pastoral Assistants: Elizabeth Gibbs, Valerie Herring, Penny Osborn.

We have a team of Occasional preachers who preach 4 or 5 times every year and bring added insights and understanding to the worship and teaching of the church. They are Richard Bacon, David Burrows, Elizabeth Gibbs, Ruth Gill and Phil Lewis and Laura Gill.

The Young Saints leaders, Choir, Bellringers, Little Saints leaders, church cleaners, flower arrangers and all those who assist in the services week by week are also an important part of the team which keeps All Saints Church serving the community.
