Meet Our Staff Team

  • Henry Curran

    Henry joined the Moreton Vale Churches as our minister in July 2021, prior to that having served parishes in and around Nottingham. He is married to Kate and they have a son, Ali. He loves sailing (and Moreton is slightly nearer the sea than Nottingham), watching Rugby, and exploring the Cotswold countryside with a lively Labrador called Oscar.

  • Claire Mason

    Claire has been on the staff of St. David's full time since 1998. Previously she studied at Plymouth, then worked for Hewlett Packard in Bristol, before doing a year on the Cornhill course in London. Claire co-ordinates Friday Club, Mums and Tots, the Women's Bible Studies and visiting.

  • Margo Stansbury

    Margo has been a member of St. David's for about 19 years, with husband Rob, and two sons, James and Jonny. Margo is our Church Administrator, but she also looks after the running of St. David's Centre, co-ordinating the bookings, and making sure all runs smoothly. In her spare time she used to run the local branch of the Mothers Union and helps with Sunday Club!

  • Ian Bentley

    Ian has been ordained for around 40 years, and served in parishes in North and central London, Eynsham, and Basingstoke. He, and his wife, Ruth, have recently retired from full-time ministry, to Moreton, where he helps out in all aspects of the ministry, as our part-time Associate Minister.

  • Nico Spreeth

    Nico is proudly South African but grew up in Surrey. He first put his trust in Jesus at university in Durham where he met his wife Jo. Nico has moved to Moreton to serve as our Youth and Children's Worker. Like any South African, he loves meat and sport!

  • Jo Spreeth

    Jo grew up in Norfolk and studied languages at Durham Uni. During lockdown 2020, she and Nico got married and together moved to Moreton to both join the staff team at St Davids’s! Jo is our Ministry Intern and is involved with a bit of everything, with a particular focus on Children’s and Youth work.

  • Sharon Squires

    Sharon grew up in Southampton and moved to Moreton in 2015. She joined the staff team as IT and Communications Worker in June 2020. She has one daughter and a guide dog brood called Lucy, and together they enjoy walking and movie days!

  • Jamie Avis

    Jamie has been a Christian since his teenage years. He and Shonagh moved from South West London to Moreton in 2009. They have 2 sons and 3 grandchildren. Being Churchwarden was the one church job he said he would never, ever do, but is enjoying working with the staff team and Max, and serving the church family. He and Shonagh love welcoming people to their home and building friendships and love spending time with their family.

  • Max Nicholls

    Max moved to Moreton in Marsh from Walsall, in July 2012 with his wife Caroline, upon her retirement as a primary school teacher. It was walking through the doors of St David’s in September 2012 which changed both Max and Caroline’s lives forever! Having intermittently attended various CofE churches throughout their then 29 years of marriage their eyes, ears or hearts had never previously been truly opened to the salvation offered by Jesus’ death on the cross! Following coming to faith and a growing involvement in life at St David’s he has been honoured to serve as Warden since 2018.
