Revd Canon Andrew Wheeler (Andy),
Leader of Common Ground Guildford
  The Members of the Common Ground Guildford Community  
Andy is the leader of Common Ground Guildford. He was previously Mission Pastor of St Saviours Guildford and continues to be Guildford Diocese's World Mission Advisor. He is a long term Church Mission Society (CMS) Mission Partner who has worked in the Sudan. The establishment and effectiveness of Guildford Town Centre Chaplaincy (GTCC) and Street Angels are evidence of his concern for Guildford's people and community. In his spare time he enjoys retreats to places such as Iona, is rumoured to have ideas for a new book and slow down into partial retirement.  Andy is an ordained Anglican minister responsible to the Bishop of Guildford. 
 
  The Common Ground Guildford Community is an open one. It is not residential and people remain part of their churches. People join as members by making a pledge to the Community Way of Life which involves prayer, sharing together and going (to offer the Christian message in fresh ways).  You should be sure this is the right thing for you now. Some people will be involved with the Community as Companions and Friends, supporting the mission community and often active in making events happen, without being able to go as far as making a formal commitment as Members at this stage.Common Ground Guildford is made up of Christians from various Guildford Town Centre churches and supported (especially in prayer) by others who live elsewhere.

Oversight Committee   Revd Canon Robert Cotton 
Common Ground Guildford is made up of Christians from various Guildford Town Centre churches and supported (especially in prayer) by others who live elsewhere. It meets under the legal umbrella of Holy Trinity St Mary's Guildford, whose Rector Robert Cotton is responsible for St Mary's church where Common Ground meets. Common Ground Guildford therefore has a small Oversight Group, which reports to Holy Trinity St Mary's PCC and Rector to make sure stewardship obligations and accountabilities are fulfilled. The Group also makes sure that there is proper ongoing communication with partners and funders. The Chairman is Andrew Carvell. The other members are Nigel Campion-Smith, Kristina Ingate and Revd Canon Robert Cotton.   Robert is the Rector of Holy Trinity St Mary's town centre parish. He is a key supporter of Common Ground Guildford. Importantly he has allowed Common Ground Guildford to use St Mary's as a base and the framework within which Andy Wheeler works as an ordained minister. We are really grateful for Robert's support and for making time to make sure Common Ground Guildford has got this far.
