Lay Chair

Mr Leslie Jackson

Leslie was voted in as the new Lay Chair of Reigate Deanery at the Synod meeting on 22nd October.  He is the Church Warden at St. Mary’s Church in Reigate and also a Member of Diocesan Synod.

He was formerly a Secondary School maths teacher and worked at St. Bede’s in Redhill and now works part-time, representing and supporting staff for the National Education Union.

Leslie began as a Christian as a teenager at a Boy’s Brigade camp and continued to grow and learn about the Christian walk.  He is married with 2 children.

He recently became a Trustee of Sparkfish and would love to see the Deanery Synod working in a similar way to Sparkfish, bringing lots of Churches and different denominations to work together.  He is excited about the future of Reigate Deanery and hopes to show compassion and the ability to listen and then to seek God’s wisdom.
