'With intent: worker-priests living and loitering within the M25' is maintained by Hugh Valentine, an MSE/WP in London Diocese. Its main aim is to bring together information which may be of interest to those for whom the site is named and those interested in this particular expression of ordained ministry and Christian witness.

As a spin-off, it is hoped to gather data about this clerical species as it may be spotted within the area bounded by the M25 (the Church of England authorities seem to have permanent difficulty in knowing who we are and where we work).

A related aim (though probably arising from the triumph of hope over experience) is to increase awareness within the church about this variant strain of traditional manifestations of priesthood.


worker-priests can be hard to spot
