Assistant Curate: Fr Nigel Palmer
Fr Nigel was born in Lincolnshire, where his father was a sheep farmer, providing him with invaluable early experience in pastoral ministry. He has however spent the best part of his working life in London, where he was a solicitor specialising in the glittering world of film and television for over thirty years. He took a degree in Theology from St Stephen’s House in 2015, where he first met Fr Peter during Fr Peter’s time as Junior Dean there. He returned to St Stephen’s to train for ministry in 2016. He was ordained deacon in July 2017, and looks forward, God willing, to his priesting next year.
He lived in Kentish Town for two years whilst he was training to be a solicitor, and sometimes worshipped at St Benet’s during that time. He finds that, though much has changed, much, rather comfortingly, remains the same. He now lives in Greenwich.

Pastoral Assistant: Edoardo Fanfani
Edoardo, our pastoral assistant here at St. Benet’s, was born in Rome, Italy where he has been worshipping at All Saints’, the local Church of England chaplaincy for about five years, during which time he discerned his call to the ordained ministry. He is a student of Cultural Heritage of the Church at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, a mix of art history with some theology thrown in! Here I am pictured with the lovely Renaissance Adoration of the Magi by Domenico Ghirlandaio at Santa Trinita in Florence. During my spare time I absolutely love to cook and find more beautiful artworks!
