 Andrew Roberts became Diocesan Secretary in September 2011, bringing with him a great deal of experience of church administration. After studying maths at City of London Polytechnic Andrew explored a vocation to the priesthood. It was suggested that he work for a while to test his calling, so he started a job with the Church Commissioners. Then he became Private Secretary to the Secretary General of Synod, Phillip Mawer.

“This was great experience, but after a while I felt a call towards more grass roots activity", says Andrew. So he took a job as Assistant to the Diocesan Secretary of St Albans Diocese. Whilst living in London Andrew also served as a Church Treasurer, PCC Secretary and Deanery Synod Representative. From 2002 until he started working for the Diocese of Peterborough he was joint Assistant Diocesan Secretary for both Coventry and Leicester dioceses.
