Katrina heads up our Children’s Ministry, ages 3-11, with a dedicated team of volunteers. Katrina and her team are passionate about discipling young children into relationship with Jesus. Outside of church Katrina enjoys reading novels and learning about history. At University, Katrina ran a christian radio show, and still does some times. She married her husband, Stephen in September 2016.

He also manages the bookings of Baptisms and Weddings for both communities, as well being PCC secretary for both.
Alan is one of our worship leaders at Rainham Parish Church and as a keen musician and instrumentalist, he plays guitar, bass, drums and mandolin. Alan is married to Emma and they have two children.

Revd Elise Peterson
Elise is originally from America but after a number of years in the UK, she now considers herself an ‘Ameri-Brit’ – definitely still American, but also just a bit British – and considers England home for the long term. Prior to moving to the UK in 2013 and embarking on a journey to ordination in the CofE, Elise spent more than fifteen years working in tech publishing and communications and lived most of her life in California before moving to Portland, Oregon.
She was ordained in September 2017 at Chelmsford Cathedral and served her curacy in the parish of Chigwell and Chigwell Row. In addition to ministry, she loves walking in the gorgeous English countryside and hiking in the mountains, reading a good novel or mystery, travelling around the British Isles and Europe (and of course, back to America), attempting to create a classic English garden, and spending time with friends and family.
