Reverend Rickey Simpson-Gray

I am Rickey Simpson-Gray, Vicar, in the Parish of Wokingham St Sebastian’s, Sonning Deanery.

A bit about me:

My social friends know me as “Rickey” although my formal name is “Lennox” as my mother and father couldn’t decide and so I have carried dual names ever since.  I am married to my lovely wife of 28 years, Nicki, and we have two children.

I served my first Incumbency as Team Vicar in the Parish of the Claydons, a Benefice of three churches and traditions, in North Buckingham.    It was an honour to be serving our local rural communities.  

I am originally from the Diocese of St Albans where I served in two team churches in the Hemel Hempstead Parish.   Earlier, I served in Watford in praise and worship services, pastoral care and altar ministries.   

I spent my formative years in the Church of God of Prophecy serving in the equivalent ministries of my late mother who was a Pastor.   Beyond church, I served in several government roles as a Chartered Management Accountant.   My wife, Nicki, is a Child Psychotherapist. 

I relax by reading, walking and play a bass guitar with several friends covering different music genres and am sponsored by Thwaites Stringed instruments.

I am really excited that God has called me to this new post.   I am looking forward to building connections, finding opportunities, offering encouragement and support after a few challenging years.  I hope you’ll join me as we look to the future of journeying together with fun on this exciting road of discovery and opportunity. 

Shalom

†Reverend Rickey Simpson-Gray
