We’ve recently had a number of changes to the team at Moot and thought we’d update you on who’s been coming and going.
Firstly: with a heavy heart we said goodbye in April to our temporary Priest Andrew Norwood. Andrew joined us in September 2015 at the beginning of our interregnum and over the last year and a half has supported us wonderfully both spiritually and practically, including guiding us through a period of reflection on who we are as a community. We are extremely grateful for Andrew’s presence over the last period and will miss him!
On a happier note, in March we welcomed Gonzalo Cabezas Talavero to the Moot team as Cafe Manager and Building Manager. He will be splitting his time between managing Host and helping the community make the best use use of our beautiful building. Make sure you say “Hi” to him when you next swing by the cafe. He is working with the staff to create some innovative new drinks so be sure to ask to try any new creations.
We also say farewell (as a Moot staff member) to Effie Gemi-Iordanou who has most recently been working in the Moot office improving processes and getting things in shape, but has also worked as a barista in the Host Cafe as well as volunteering with Moot before that and through the years! Effie has been working in one way or another since 2014 so we’re glad that although she’s ending her current role at Moot that we can still hope to see her around the community in the future.
Lastly, we look forward to the arrival of Paul Kennedy our new Priest-in-Charge who will be licensed on Monday 8th May (see information about the event here). We will share more details about Paul and his background in the coming weeks.
