Emma Capps – Parish Administrator

When you phone the Parish Office, you will probably be speaking to Emma, and if you pop in, here’s is the friendly face which will greet you!

Emma was appointed in January 2019. She lives in Lee-on-the-Solent with her three children, Zoë, Ashby, and Ezra, as well as her husband, Justin. She was born into an RAF family in Buckinghamshire and has lived in places far and wide, including Germany, Wales, Alton, Philadelphia, Texas, and even Las Vegas!

In America, she earned an Education degree and worked in Christian schools as both teacher and school leader, gaining experience of administrative and pastoral responsibilities. Since moving back to the UK to be near family, she has worked as a customer advisor, trainer, and manager for a Lloyds Bank Customer Service Centre and served as a school governor for a local junior school.

She writes, “As a family, we enjoy hiking, geocaching, exploring the country, working down on our allotment, and attending music festivals – especially if Justin is playing with his band.

Emma and her family attend St. Mary’s and you can often find them at the Later Service where Justin plays in the worship band and Emma serves in Junior Church
