New curate: Revd Sally Muggeridge

Following her ordination as Deacon yesterday at St Paul's Cathedral, I am very pleased to be able to welcome the Revd Sally Muggeridge as curate at St Stephen Walbrook.

Sally studied at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, Westfield College, London and Henley Business School. Following a successful business career embracing several board level appointments in Marketing and Human Resource Management she became the Chief Executive of the Industry & Parliament Trust, a registered charity, a role held for seven years. She then joined the board of Total Oil UK.

With a long held and affirmed calling to ministry Sally commenced theological study with SEITE in 2008, initially as a self-supporting student, and graduated in Theology for Christian Ministry in 2013 at Christchurch University, Canterbury. She became a Reader (LLM) the same year, taking services and preaching widely in the Diocese of Canterbury and elsewhere by invitation.

As the niece of Christian apologist and broadcaster Malcolm Muggeridge, Sally has managed his legacy through a literary society, publishing several religious books including Conversion, Malcolm Muggeridge on Faith, and Something Beautiful for God. She also initiated and edited a membership newsletter called The Gargoyle. Sally was an elected lay member of General Synod from 2010-15, and a Church Commissioner from 2012. She has also been serving as a churchwarden. These lay roles have been necessarily relinquished due to ordination.

A Freeman of the City of London, Sally became Master of a City Livery Company in 2013 - the Worshipful Company of Marketors. She has also held the position of Executive Vice President of the Chartered Institute of Marketing and is an Honorary Life Member of the Academy of Marketing.
