Princess Alexandra Hospital : Harlow Air Cadets : St Clare's Hospice : Police Chaplains



Police Chaplain - Rev Jokey Poyntz

I am a Church of England minister working as Team Vicar of St Mary’s Little Parndon in the town centre parish with St Paul’s in Harlow and I also have a Community role as Deanery Missioner. I have always been interested in community chaplaincy of various kinds and used to work as a Street Pastor in Harlow (before and after I was ordained) where we trained with and worked closely with the police, so when an opportunity came up to be a Police Chaplain along with Darren, it seemed like a God-given opportunity. Although I haven’t been doing it long I have felt privileged to be warmly welcomed at Harlow Police Station, and to try to be a friendly face (usually with a box of biscuits!) and a listening ear and to show God’s love to people doing what can often be a tough and stressful job.
