John Deacon is the Chair of Trustees. After graduating in Theology, he has worked with homeless people for almost 20 years. John’s interest in community organising began when he worshipped at St Martin’s Plaistow – one of the founding members of The East London Citizens Organisation (TELCO), the first chapter of Citizens UK.
The Revd Vanessa Conant is the Team Rector of Walthamstow, and has led her congregation into renewal and growth by harnessing the potential of community organising, when it is rooted in theological reflection and prayer. Prior to training for ordination and becoming a priest, Vanessa worked in fundraising for Crisis and Christian Aid in London.
