If you come to visit us, the first person you meet might be from our staff team. Or you may be welcomed by a member of our church family.

Our church family reflects the cosmopolitan character of London. We mainly live within a few miles of St Luke's.


Alistair Tresidder


Alistair has been our vicar for 20 years. Prior to St Luke’s, he was a curate at St Anne’s, Limehouse and studied at Cranmer Hall in Durham. He is married to Sheena and they have five children, three chickens and other animals. He is now in his sixth decade.


Tom Pountain

Assistant Minister

Tom joined St Luke’s in 2018 after training for ministry at Moore College in Sydney with his wife Hannah and their four daughters, having previously spent five years on the staff of St. Helen’s Bishopsgate. As a family they like to draw in galleries, dine in parks and dance in private. 


Sheena Tresidder

Women's Worker

Sheena is married to Alistair and they have 5 children. As the children are all growing up too fast for her she also fosters and is getting used to being asked if she is their grandma. Sheena officially joined our staff team in 2018 having served alongside Alistair in various ways for the last 20 years. She loves teaching the bible and training the women of st Luke’s . Flapjacks are always on offer. She really enjoys being by the sea, especially in Cornwall.
