Parish Profile … coming soon

Assistant Curate

Fr Ayoob Adwar

Father Ayoob hails from the ancient Chaldean Church in Iraq. He was baptized and confirmed as a baby into Chaldean Christian family. He joined the Chaldean Catholic monastic order of pontifical right. He trained for ministry in Babel College in Baghdad, which is affiliated to the Pontifical Urban University in Rome.

In 2008, he was ordained a deacon and priest in the Chaldean Diocese of Alqosh in Nineveh. Later he travelled to Italy, to study for a master’s degree in Social Pedagogy at the Salesian Pontifical University in Rome. He emmigrated to Canada when ISIS took over the city of Mosul-Nineveh in 2014. He declared that he wanted to test his vocation as an Anglican priest. He went through the process of discernment including taking courses at VST and training in the Diocese of New Westminster to develop his Anglican formation.

In 2017, Archbishop Melissa Skelton recognised Ayoob’s priesthood and welcomed him into the Diocese of NW and the Anglican Church of Canada. He served his curacy at St Stephen’s Anglican Church in West Vancouver. Later he worked as Priest in Charge for the Parish of St Timothy in Burnaby and St Hilda’s Church in Sechelt. He gained the Overseas PTO through the Diocese of London, Willesden Area. He worshiped at Christ the Saviour Church in Ealing Broadway.

Licensed Lay Minister

Prof David Thomson

Professor David Thomson qualified as an Optometrist in 1980 and following a brief spell working in Portsmouth he enrolled for a Phd to study the effects of viewing computer screens on the eyes. He was awarded a Phd in 1985 and following a three year period as a post-doctorate student investigating visual function in patients with brain damage, he was appointed to the academic staff in the Department of Optometry and Visual Science at City University. He was awarded a chair in 2002 and served as Head of Department and Associate Dean.

After nearly 30 years in post he decided to leave the University to pursue various other interests including developing software for vision testing and screening. He now runs two small software businesses based in Welham Green but still lectures widely in the UK and overseas.

He has been a member of KCM church since 1988 and was a regular member of the music group. He studied to become a Licensed Lay Minister with the ERMC and was licensed in 2015. He regularly leads worship and preaches.  He has been part of the management team for the KCM Community Café for six years and has recently introduced Café Church.

He is married to Dr Penny Thomson and they have five grown up children and four grandchildren (so far). In what little spare time he has, he is to be found cycling, walking coastal paths in Dorset or on the golf course.
