John Wood MBE



After working in Uganda as a teacher and schools worker then curate in Northwood, John arrived in North London as Parish Minister at St James Muswell Hill in 1991 then moved to be Vicar of St. Ann’s South Tottenham in 1994.

It was there that the idea of starting a community – based outreach charity from the church began and Hope in Tottenham was registered in January 2014. Asked by the Trustees to become Director John left St Ann’s in 2018 to work full time at the new HiT offices in 639 High Road by the rebuilt Spurs ground.

Much of his time is spent with people, creating new projects and generating the funds that they need. He is happy to be contacted via the email below.
