“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” Jane Goodall

Lucy has recently celebrated 25 years since her ordination as a Church of England priest. She was the first woman priest to join the clergy at St Paul’s Cathedral where she served as canon precentor and has been Rector at St James’s Piccadilly since 2010. Lucy writes and speaks widely on issues including culture, gender and religion.

‘Our resolute and resilient hope is that things do not have to be as they are, and that change in the spirit is possible’ Lucy Winkett
