Our Parish is at the extreme north of the diocese of London, verging on Hertfordshire and the green belt. Geographically, it is one of the largest parishes in London, and within its
boundaries, an extraordinary range of life and activity can be found: shops, schools, housing estates, parks and farms; a major hospital (Chase Farm), the highest concentration of garden centres in Europe, and a generous slice of the M25.

The parish comprises two churches, dedicated to St John the Baptist and St Luke the Evangelist. St John's is a Venetian style country church, situated in an almost uniquely rural part of London. St Luke's is a red-brick church situated in the more urban area of north Enfield.

The focus of church life in the parish is the Sunday Eucharist, which is celebrated at both of our two churches, but there are also regular weekday services, along with other activities and social events. Visitors and newcomers are welcome to join in all our services and activities.

Our New Vicar - Rev Peter Godden

I am very excited to be arriving in Clay Hill and becoming Vicar of St John’s and St Luke’s.

I’m not coming from too far away; I grew up in Pinner, in northwest London, with my parents and four older siblings.  After training for ordination at Westcott House in Cambridge, I have spent three years as Curate of Holy Trinity Northwood, right on the edge of northwest London suburbia – so, Clay Hill’s mixture of town and countryside should feel pretty familiar.


I am passionate about spreading the Gospel and God’s love to the whole world – whether rich or poor, comfortable or marginalised.  I also want to help people truly connect with God, both through their everyday lives and when we gather together to worship.

I am married to Caroline, who I met whilst training to get ordained.  When taking time out from parish work, I like both playing and watching sport, especially trips to watch Watford FC.  I also enjoy rock & roll and jazz music, cooking, and exploring London.

Looking forward to meeting you all!

Peter who is currently Curate at Holy Trinity Northwood will be inducted in St Luke’s on Monday 26th June at 7.30pm
