Phil Jackson

Assistant Pastor

Phil is our Community Life Pastor and oversees projects including the CAP Debt Centre, Food Bank, Job Club and various life skills courses. His particular passion is running Alpha; he loves engaging with the questions that people bring and the change that following Jesus makes to their lives.

Phil has been the Head of Science at Hitchin Girls’ School since 1982 and in leadership at HCC since 1992. He has had several roles in this time, including worship leader, evangelist, and small group co-ordinator – and he is particularly proud that evidence of his DIY skills still stands in the church building!

Phil is sports mad, especially following the England cricket team through thick and mainly thin, as well as watching Watford FC at any opportunity.

Happiest: Cycling with his wife, Della, along a cycle track, followed by a cream tea.
