New Chaplain appointed
The Revd Graham Stevenson will be joining Fitzwilliam on 1 September.
The Revd Graham Stevenson read Biochemistry at Exeter College, Oxford before teaching secondary science for five years, initially through the Teach First programme. This was followed by a year living in Tunisia with his wife June, where they studied Arabic and from where they visited Syria and the West Bank.
Graham trained for Anglican ordination at St Mellitus College in London and served at St Francis’ Church in North Kensington as an Eden Team leader. Interest in academic theology led him to extend his training by completing an MA in Biblical Studies at King’s College London.
Graham and June currently live in Hackney, with their two young children, where Graham is finishing his curacy leading a church in a diverse and deprived parish.
Graham is delighted to be joining Fitzwilliam College and looks forward to engaging with the breadth of College life, encouraging the worship and activity of the Chapel and, in his free time, pursuing further studies in Theology.
The Revd Helen Arnold, Chaplain 2014-2018, will be leaving at the end of June to take up the post of Lead Chaplain in Thames Valley Police.
