Rev'd Mary Cruddas Schorne Team Vicar

Mary Cruddas

As team vicar I have served in the Schorne team of parishes for over seven years, and have special responsibility for Waddesdon, Over Winchenden, Westcott and Fleet Marston. Having spent most of my adult life in suburban Surrey, I was delighted to move to this rural part of Buckinghamshire, similar in many ways to the county of my childhood, Cornwall

I met my husband Tony whilst at university, where his tutoring skills in Chemistry ensured I graduated in Natural Sciences. We continue to work closely together. I taught in both primary and secondary schools, abroad and in London, before our three children, John, Peter and Claire were born. After years of lay ministry, I was ordained priest at Guildford Cathedral in 2008. I now delight in three grandchildren.

I share with the local church a desire seek God in worship, share life together, and serve the community of which we are part. We have a vision of a welcoming church building that is open to all. To that end we plan to incorporate a bakery and cafe within the footprint of the building and offer an educational experience that celebrates the centrality of bread, both physical and spiritual, to living life to the full.

I enjoy baking bread, walking, listening to music, gardening and discovering the people who call Aylesbury Vale "home".
