Revd Sue Lepp is originally from Calgary, Canada and has lived in various places in the UK over the last 14 years. She originally trained as a Nurse and spent most of her nursing career caring for cancer patients & families in many different areas. Sue finished her nursing career at Barts Health as a MacMillan Palliative Care Nurse. Her call to ordained Anglican ministry came through hospital chaplaincy at the Royal Brompton Hospital. In 2014, she moved to Oxford to train at Wycliffe Hall. Sue served her curacy in the Parish of Langley Marish in Slough. It was here that Sue started to volunteer with Thames Valley Police in 2018. Sue is currently Interim Priest-in-Charge of the Hambleden Valley Group of Churches in the Oxford Diocese.
Sue has extensive chaplaincy experience in hospital, academic and police settings. In the hospital she led services, visited patients and trained new volunteers alongside the Lead Chaplain. During her time in Oxford Sue was on placement with the Chaplain at Jesus College. Here she led small group studies, participated in chapel activities and provided pastoral care to a diverse group of students. During her time with TVP Sue has become a trusted and regular feature in the Slough nick through weekly visits, providing pastoral care to officers, family members and staff. Sue recently joined TVP with a group of local knitters to provide ‘Trauma Friends’ (small knitted toys) to be given to children at distressing scenes.
Sue has a broad range of interest and experience in chaplaincy, a positive outlook and willingness to work hard to further the interests of Police Chaplaincy UK.
