Rev. Alice Goodman has been our Rector since September 2011, and has general oversight for the three parishes of Fulbourn, Great and Little Wilbraham with Six Mile Bottom. She originally comes from Minnesota, U.S.A., and studied literature both at Harvard and then here in Cambridge. Alice has an established literary reputation both as a poet and an opera librettist. Her late husband was Sir Geoffrey Hill, the Professor of Poetry at Oxford. She has one daughter, Alberta, and four grown-up step-children.

Having been brought up in a Jewish family, Alice converted in adult life to Christianity, and later became ordained in the Church of England. She joined us from Trinity College, Cambridge, where she served for 5 years as Chaplain. Before that, her first job in the Church of England was as Assistant Curate to the Kidderminster Parish Church Team.

Ms. Bethan Howe became the Parish Assistant for Fulbourn, Great Wilbraham, Little Wilbraham and Six Mile Bottom in June 2017. She supports the work of Alice, our Rector, and helps to organise services in the churches for the school, runs Happy/ Sad Club in school and sometimes takes assemblies.

She grew up in Hertfordshire before moving to Bangor, North Wales to study. After studying she began working at Bangor Cathedral, where she was the Children’s and Youth work co-ordinator and Lay-chaplain to the University. When she moved to Cambridgeshire in 2016 she started working for the Church of England Youth Council.

When not involved in all things Church, she loves the outdoors and good food! Bethan is a Scout leader in Cottenham and a keen baker!

Mrs. Gemma Dunsmure became Parish Administrative Assistant in May 2018.  She supports the work of Alice and Bethan, and helps to advertise church services, produce the weekly sheet and orders of service for special occasions, and complete general administrative duties.

She grew up in Cherry Hinton and moved to Fulbourn with her husband in 2009.  She gave up her work in 2013 as a Tax Assistant/Administrator with an accountancy firm to be a stay-at-home mum with her two young children.  She then began volunteering at St Vigor's Baby Dragons toddler group where you can still find her every Tuesday.  This led her to the role of Parish Administrator.

She can be contacted via Twelve (01223 882070) Mondays to Thursdays or via email.
