    New Director for St Katharine's

    From 1st February Stewart McCredie is in post as director of St Katharine’s. Stewart joins us having run a busy retreat house in Essex, where he oversaw building improvements and extensions. Before applying for the post, Stewart visited St Katharine’s with Gill, his wife, so he could feel ‘dissuaded’ from applying. Instead he was surprised to feel overwhelmingly excited by the possibilities he could see for St Katharine’s and felt he had no choice but to apply. We look forward to what this new phase will bring.
