Kirstyn Oliver

Children & Families Minister

Kirstyn has loved teaching children and supporting their families for many years now. Since 2013 she has worked with autistic children/ young people and has a passion for supporting them to grow in their faith too. In 2018, Kirstyn started raising awareness of autism in churches in and around South London which led her to start working as a children and families minister. Kirstyn also spent 14 years in Brazil and speaks fluent Portuguese.



Helen looks after most of the administrative side of Christ Church Beckenham (that isn't finance) as well as doing a brilliant job of keeping Rob on track. Helen's professional background is in HR Management and we are very grateful for all the expertise she brings in this area (as well as many others). You may not see Helen on a Sunday as she attends a church nearer to where she lives.



Sarah is a wonderful part of what happens behind the scenes in the life of Christ Church Beckenham. As Treasurer, Sarah works closely with the PCC, our Finance Committee and with our Office Manager, to ensure that the finances at Christ Church are handled correctly and efficiently.



Uzo joined the Christ Church Beckenham team in the summer of 2020 and is predominantly responsible for the presentation of our buildings as well as the smooth coming and going of the many groups that use the buildings. Uzo has two (almost) grown up children and has a wonderful passion for prayer!
