Rev Jacqueline Littlewood - Associate Priest
 
 
 
I trained on a residential course at Lincoln Theological College between 1977 and 1980 and served my first curacy as a stipendiary deaconess in the parish of St Paulinus, Crayford. In 1984 I moved to the parish of Holy Family, Gravesend with St Margaret, Ifield and whilst there I was ordained as a deacon in 1987. Another move took place in 1993 when I was licensed as a non-stipendiary curate to St Aidan, Gravesend, and in 1994 I was one of the first women to be ordained as a priest. In March 2006 I was licensed as an Honorary Curate to this parish with which I have had links through the East Gravesend Group and Gravesend Deanery since 1984.
I was enrolled as a member of the Mothers' Union in 1981 and have served on Branch Committees and as Enrolling Member/ Branch Leader, and between 2004-2007 as a Trustee for Rochester Diocese.
In 2015 - 16 Councillor Michael Wenban a member of Christ Church was elected Mayor of Gravesham and I was appointed as Mayors Chaplain.  In May 2019 Councillor Gurdip Ram Bungar was elected as Mayor and I am serving as his Chaplain.
I am currently  Chaplain to the Royal Marines Association, Gravesend;  The Merchant Navy Association, Gravesend; the Gravesham Borough Council Workplace Chaplain; and the Maritime Volunteer Service, Gravesend and Medway Units.  I am also part of the Bluewater Chaplaincy Team.
