Rev Dr Eddie Scrase-Field
I’m really pleased to have joined St. John’s Blackheath as the new vicar! It’s been a great pleasure to read about the church and catch a glimpse of all that the Lord has been doing in you and through you. My faith started from a very young age having the great privilege of being brought up in a Christian home. Although I was born in Royston, Herts I have lived in many diﬀerent places, including Suﬀolk, Aberdeenshire, Ohio in the US, Manchester and York.
I trained as a research scientist in plant biochemistry and molecular biology and then worked for a government agency in the regulation of pesticides. During this period I was called and selected for ordination and trained at Ridley Hall Cambridge. I completed my curacy in the picturesque city of Carlisle, and then moved to my current post as Associate Minister at St Mary’s, Cheadle, near Manchester. To relax I enjoy spending time with my family, especially visiting coastal areas of the UK, and occasionally I also get to play cricket, golf or even go running.
