Saint Barnabas is a part of Southwell Diocese and the Church of England

Our Leadership Team

Rev Andy Tufnell – Vicar of  St Barnabas and Christ Church Chilwell

Andy arrived at St Barnabas in 2017 with his wife Claire and their two daughters. Before he began full time ministry in the church he was a secondary school Physics teacher in the UK and Uganda. Andy loves time with his family, whether it’s a family walk, attempting to sing along to the latest Disney soundtrack, or playing on the beach. You could easily spark a conversation with Andy with an exploration of the big questions of philosophy, Physics and faith. But, if you prefer movies, books or watching the football over a pint, you’ll find Andy equally satisfied.
