Meet the Team
St Saviour’s church is a place where everyone can contribute to church life. There are many people leading in lots of different ways: on the PCC, childrens & youth work, community groups, administration, worship, home groups etc. We are a family and everyone is invited to get involved. The church is led by our Rector who is supported by a Children & Families worker, a team of Readers and many other people.
Rector of St Saviour’s church
Reverend Michael Norman
I have been Rector of St Saviour’s with Swainswick and Woolley since 1998. My wife Pam and I have been married for over 30 years, and we have 4 children, 3 grandchildren and a golden retriever . I enjoy watching sport, especially going to see Bath Rugby play. I am passionate about prayer and seeing the church grow as disciples of Jesus, and reach out to a world which needs to discover the love of Jesus.
Youth & Children’s Worker
I’ve been working at St Saviour’s since the summer of 2015, after 10 years of working with children and young people in church. I am passionate about using biblical narrative creatively to speak into the hearts of young people. I believe that teaching children the biblical story from a young age is key, in order for their faith to have strong foundations: giving children roots and wings in their faith.
I studied theology at Cambridge and am a trained secondary school teacher. I am currently studying part-time for an MA in applied theology at Moorlands College. I’m married to Chris and mother to two wonderful children who have two dwarf rabbits. In my spare time I enjoy baking and knitting toys.
I am Reader with a special desire in my preaching to teach about the whole Bible and the way it applies to modern life. Support for the persecuted church around the world has been a big part of my life for over forty years. As well as being a reader, I am also a day time home group leader for some older members who cannot get out in the evenings. My special interest, apart from my wife and family, is Bath Rugby.
I am a mother of 3 wonderful girls and I’m married to Huw, a surveyor. We jointly run and manage building projects. I am very active and love anything outdoors: tennis, gardening, skiing, sailing, traveling etc. I am involved in city wide Church initiatives, Prayer for the City and I am a BathCAN committee member. I attend New Wine each year and find that I am always challenged by God through it. I am passionate about ‘The word of God’ and believe it to be the world’s best but most underutilised resource!
I am a trained teacher and a widow with 6 grown up children. I have been a part of St Saviour’s church since 2008, when I moved to Bath to be closer to some of my children. Now I live with some of them and others live nearby, with their children. Though I was brought up in non-conformist churches, our family has worshipped as Anglicans for a while now. My other interests and loves include choral singing, reading and the natural world, with a bit of painting and writing. I have been on several trips to India as part of a small charity, which were a huge joy. I currently work part-time as a carer and a private tutor in addition to my service as a lay reader.
I am a Reader at St Saviour’s so I preach and occasionally lead services and I also head up the home group team. I like crochet and knitting, especially blankets. I love the English language and my favourite book is Bill Bryson’s “Notes from a Small Island.” I like meeting people from abroad and love a good Jane Austen film. I work as a nurse at the main Hospital in Bath twice a week and try to do a bit of cycling to keep fit. I am married to Michael and we have 4 children, 3 grandchildren and a dog called Cheddar.
Parochial Church Council (PCC)
The PCC is made up of members of St Saviour’s church, representing all areas of church life and church members. They are re-elected every year, and meet regularly; overseeing church life and making decisions regarding the spiritual and physical aspects of the church and building.
