Who we are

The churchwardens


Following the retirement of Anthony Dickson in June 2024, the Parish of Postlebury and the three churches in East Mendip of Leigh-on-Mendip with Downhead, and Stoke St Michael are being run by their churchwardens, supported by our administrator Claire Edwardes and a team of retired clergy living locally.  We also have a lay reader, Henry Pomeroy and a team of lay pastoral assistants.  We will continue to offer all the usual church services and pastoral support in our communities throughout the period of vacancy until the appointment of our new priest-in-charge.


Henry Pomeroy

Lay Reader

I have lived in Nunney all my life, with stints in London and Africa. I’m married to Caroline and we have two sons in their twenties. I became a Christian in my twenties and joined a church in London. I’m a chartered surveyor by background, but changed my career to international development 25 years ago, and have retired recently from running a charity called CHASE Africa.

I am a “Lay Reader” which means that I am not ordained, but licenced to lead services, preach, and take funerals. Caroline and I are also part of the Little Saplings and Open the Book team at Nunney School and we host one of the Life Groups.

During the vacancy, I am coordinating pastoral care across the Parish of Postlebury.

In my spare time I keep sheep and bees, and I like to run and cycle.
