Rev Sophie Chatten


Sophie was born in Guildford, raised in Godalming and lived in Woking, so she sees the move to Stoughton in July 2015 as a move home. Most recently she and her husband Simon and their son Benjamin have been living in Bath so that Sophie could undertake her theological training at Trinity College, Bristol whilst Simon taught at Monkton Prep School. Prior to this Sophie was the Young Families Minister at St Mary of Bethany Church, Woking, which is where she began to explore a call to ordained ministry. She was ordained a Deacon in July 2015, was ordained Priest in July 2016 and is excited to be doing her curacy here at Emmanuel. Sophie enjoys running, camping, walking, and being with friends and family. Simon is Sophie’s running coach and is very sporty, and little Benjamin loves diggers, buses, food and shouting.
