Rev'd Anthony Bewes

Team Leader

Anthony studied history and politics at Birmingham University before doing youth work at a church in the East End.  This was followed by a spell teaching and working as a chaplain’s assistant in his old school. Theological college and parish ministry followed before he joined the Lymington Rushmore team and moved to Oxford.
He loves … his wife, their four children, their dog and the game after which he was named, Padder.  In his spare time he watches his children playing sport he used to be able to play and contents himself with the sports he still can – golf and real tennis!  He also loves every opportunity to encourage people to think about the person of Jesus and what it might look like to follow him today.

Rev'd David Reid

Junior Holidays Leader

David heads up our Junior Holidays. He loves living in Oxford (having moved here back in 2002), but as a keen sailor he wishes it was just a little closer to the sea! David was an undergraduate at Durham University where he studied Natural Sciences, had a second stint as a student when he was training for ordination, and then spent nine years working for a church in Oxford. He is married to Helen and they have two small children (Timothy and Rachel) who are very excited about being taught by their Dad to sail a boat one day!

Phoebe Paget

Operations & Events Coordinator

Phoebe moved to Oxford in 2018 to work for the Titus Trust, having graduated from Durham University in 2014 with a degree in Anthropology & Archaeology, and then working in London. She loves playing netball, baking, sailing, tennis, watching rugby and spending time with her husband, Harry, who works at a prep school in Oxford. 

Sarah Sugars

Senior Staff Worker

Sarah came on board as a Senior Staff Worker in summer 2022. She grew up in Australia, and studied History and French at university there. She has spent the last 9 years in London, working with uni students in a university Christian Union and then in a church. Most recently she completed 3 years of ministry training at a theological college. She’s enjoying exploring everything Oxford has to offer with her housemates.

Will Clarke

Staff Worker

Will grew up in Hertfordshire, and first became involved in Lymington Rushmore after leaving school. He studied economics at university, with a particular focus on financial markets and corporate policy towards the end of the three years. On our holidays Will loves banana boating (particularly when he manages to stay on!). In his spare time, he enjoys drinking good coffee with his wife, Eleanor, and playing lots of squash.

Susannah Townsend

Staff Worker

Susannah’s first involvement with Lymington Rushmore was as an eleven year old camper on Junior A 2009 where she had the best week of her life. Her enthusiasm for camp remains undimmed, so she’s delighted to now be joining the team as a Junior Staff Worker. Having studied English Language and Literature at Oxford University, she’s excited to return to all her old library haunts. When not reading a book, she may be found wild swimming, climbing, or at the theatre.

Anna Pilcher


Anna first got involved with Lymington Rushmore in her first year at Edinburgh University, where she was studying History of Art. Having spent four years in the frozen north, she’s looking forward to spending time in balmy Oxford, where, so far, she is experiencing the joys of not having to wear a coat and scarf all year round! In her spare time, Anna enjoys walks with friends (especially when they pass good coffee shops!!), making clothes, and visiting art galleries.

Titus Waldock


Titus grew up in Cambridge but spent his university days studying Natural Sciences and exploring the chilly Northumberland coastline with friends. In Oxford he enjoys playing rugby for a local club, trying the most exotic ice cream flavours at the local store G&D’s, and when he gets the chance is always keen for a game of garden cricket. 

Ellie Dawson


Ellie studied and worked in Manchester and London before moving to Oxford to join the Lymington Rushmore staff team. A lover of all things food, she can often be found in the kitchen, cooking for friends and family. The rest of the time, she enjoys reading, being outside and hanging out with students from church!

Zak Tomlinson


Zak is in his second year as an associate. He grew up in Lebanon, but came back to the UK for sixth form then studied Chemistry at university in the north of England. He’s enjoyed moving down south again to Oxford and particularly loves going for walks and cycles in the beautiful countryside in and around Oxford. He has enjoyed playing football for a local team, and on a free evening you might find him hanging out with friends or baking something delicious (hopefully!).
