On the evening of Wednesday 25th July, the Rev’d Alex Jeewan was licensed as Team Vicar for the parishes Great and Little Chesterford, Littlebury, and Wendens Ambo within the Saffron Walden and Villages Team Ministry. At a celebratory service in a packed All Saints Church in Great Chesterford, Alex was warmly welcomed to his new ministry. The congregation was bolstered by a coach-load of supporters from Witham where Alex’s ministry as a curate in the Witham and Villages Team Ministry was greatly appreciated.

Alex was born in London, and has lived in Swindon, Harlow, East London, Epping, Cambridge and Witham. He considers himself a ‘West Essex Man.’ Prior to ordination in 2015, Alex was a primary school teacher. Having enjoyed his time in the classroom, Alex sensed that God was asking him to change direction. Alex is excited to be joining the Saffron Walden and Villages Team and to serve the five villages of Great Chesterford, Little Chesterford, Wendens Ambo, Littlebury and Littlebury Green. He looks forward to working with the people in these historic and beautiful places to share God’s love within the church and wider community. Alex has been married to Caroline for 21 years. They have two children, Tom and Ben, as well as their friendly dog, Bailey.

In his spare time, Alex likes watching films, listening to music, playing guitar and walking the dog. He has recently taken up archery but promises ‘to put down his bow and arrow whenever anyone visits!’

The Team Rector, the Rev’d Canon David Tomlinson, is thrilled to have Alex as a new colleague, ‘I am delighted to welcome Alex, and his family, Caroline, Tom and Ben. Alex is joining a strong and collaborative team who seek to ‘share God’s love’ across this beautiful part of North-West Essex. Alex is going to enrich our shared life and help the churches and parishes under his care as Team Vicar flourish.’
