Ben Williams

Ordinand

People ask: “What is an ordinand?”

The easiest way to explain that title is by saying I am a trainee vicar. I am currently working in Lutterworth, learning from the ministry and people here, while also studying a Theology Degree at St Mellitus College, London.

Ben and his wife Emily moved to Lutterworth in 2018 as part of his training towards ordination in the Church of England. He has been involved in various aspects of church life, in particular music, youth work, the local Covid-19 Crisis response team, and Sunday services. Ben is passionate about preaching, outreach and social action.

Since arriving in Lutterworth Ben and Emily have welcomed their son, Judah, into the world and he enjoys reading, running and watching films that most would consider “guilty pleasures”.
