The Team

Revd Phil Williams leads the team at St Paul’s.

After growing up on the borders of East London and Essex and following 10 years of involvement with mission movements, church plants and church leadership, Phil joined the team at HTB and Alpha in 2008, becoming Creative Director. While at HTB he trained with St Mellitus College before being ordained curate. In 2014 Phil returned to East London partnering with several groups to lead a plant into Christ Church Spitalfields. He was licensed as Rector of St Paul’s Shadwell in 2016.

Phil is married to Charlotte, they have a daughter called Adelaide. You can find him online @RevdPhil.


Alongside Phil we have an amazing bunch of staff, students, interns, ordinands (trainee-vicars) and super-volunteers. Pictured below, they meet together every Tuesday morning to pray and worship and make plans to keep things ship-shape.
