An author and green-fingered genius, Gary oversees all the St Peter’s House admin, bookings and day-to-day carry-on. He is also in charge of our community allotment, and (along with Ben) looks after the bees on the roof – so if you want to get involved with either of these areas of our shared life, drop him a line at the SPH office.

Caleb, Merab and Anna are three brave souls who have taken up our challenge for students to come and work with us for a year, alongside their studies. They all have different skills and are generally excellent people in a variety of ways – if you want to find out how, come and meet them at St Peter’s House sometime! By the way, this is an annual opportunity – so if you’re interested in joining us for a year (1 day per week, paid and fully supported alongside studies) get in touch for more information.
