During the Interregnum the Parish will be supported by this team of people alongside the Associate Wardens at Ballinger and Little Hampden, the Deputy Wardens at Great Missenden, and the existing army of volunteers.
David covers the role of Chair. Mike O’Farrell, Val Withams, Guy Priestley, Martyn Green and Harriet Lemon will support him with the co-ordination of the parish and leading day-to-day activities for the months until a replacement vicar is identified and takes the reins. They will try to replicate the ‘staff team’.
With so many volunteers already helping with church operation a slightly wider group has volunteered to be available to feedback any thoughts and queries that volunteers may have, to act as a safety net and minimise duplication of workload.
Parish activities have been divided into six teams, each with a volunteer administrator, namely:
Worship Administrator: Brenda Harris
Services across all three Churches, Junior Church, Prayers.
Pastoral care will continue in the good hands of Tricia Neale and her team. Tricia will still be with us and will continue with the her love and commitment to Little Hampden and the house groups, along with being a source of all knowledge.
Music Administrator: Wendy Harris
Choir, Music for Services and Celebrations, Bellringers.
Finance Administrator: Mike O’Farrell
Volunteers Administrator: Sue O’Farrell

Associate and Deputy Wardens
During the interregnum we don’t have appointed Churchwardens but we have both Associate and Deputy Wardens that are appointed by the PCC. Associate Wardens look after the two small Churches in the parish:
*St Mary’s Ballinger: Margaret Cameron and Anne Ellis

Deputy wardens set-up and support activities for Sunday services at St Peter & St Paul. There is a rota for Saturday set-up, Sunday 10am and Sunday evening support. The current deputies are: Roger Fuggle, Martyn Green, Brenda & David Harris, Emma Harris, Eddie Howells, Chloe Lewis, Chris Nickless and Jane & Keith Ray.
We have a rota of 21 Church members who act as sides persons at our regular services.
