Fenella Woods - Team Administrator

Hi, my name is Fenella Woods and I am the new Team Administrator and Communication Coordinator for the Hermitage Team of Churches.  This is a new role within the Church Family and I am very much enjoying meeting everyone across all seven parishes and working with the fantastic team of people that help put together our services, festivals and events.

I live in Hampstead Norreys with my husband Steven, our lively border terrier called Teddy and a ginger tom cat called Tiger and we moved here from Thatcham in 2014.  Since then I have actively been involved in Church life at St. Marys, being a regular attendee of the services, being married by Luci there, helping out with Messy Church, singing in the choir and I am also the secretary for their PCC.

Previously I have been a Computing Teacher at a secondary school in Reading, but more recently you may have spotted me in the Dispensary at the Chieveley and Compton surgeries where I spent a couple of happy years there working with the Doctors and Patients.  I bring to this role a combination of IT experience, organisational skills and a love of working with people and I am so thrilled to be employed alongside all the Clergy and Churchwardens of our parishes.

My working hours are 10am to 12pm, Monday to Thursday.  You can find me at St Mark’s in Cold Ash on a Monday and at the Community Shop in Hampstead Norreys on a Thursday and I work from home the other two days.  You can contact me on 07467 611194 or email me at fenella@hermitage-team.org.uk and I will be happy to help you with any wedding, baptism, event or query you may have.
