Revd Giles Carpenter


Inspired by the character Barnabas, Giles is passionate about seeing the gifts and talents of others fanned into flame. Alongside his role as vicar of Meads, he is part of the vocations discernment team in Chichester Diocese. Giles studied theology first at the University of Wales and later at Trinity College Bristol; serving his curacy near Guildford before moving to St John’s in 2014 with his wife, Rachel and their three children, two dogs and a cat called ‘DJ Custard’… don’t ask!
