The Rev'd Christine Blackman
Christine first arrived in Reading in the late 1970s as a Chemistry student at the University. Ever since graduating, she taught science in the same classroom in a Comprehensive School in Abingdon, until her retirement in summer 2017. She trained for the priesthood at St Stephen’s House, Oxford, and was ordained as a deacon in 1991, and as a Priest in 1994. Christine is married to another of our Associate Priests, Brian. As well as presiding and preaching at St Bart’s, Christine makes sure that Sunday Club at St Luke’s is the most fun you can have on a Sunday morning!
