Chaplains of Trinity College


Trinity College has two Chaplains, who take responsibility for the pastoral care of members of College, as well as leading daily worship and running groups and activities.  The Chaplains are available at all times to meet with students, and can also regularly be found in their rooms during their office hours, or at other times by appointment.


John Summers

Having read law at Oxford and Cambridge, John practised as a chancery barrister in London for 8 years before ordination, and served his curacy in rural West Dorset.

John is available to all members of college for friendly and compassionate support, as well as to anyone who simply wants to chat, irrespective of religious persuasions (or lack of them). He works closely with the welfare team in college and can assist anybody who needs guidance about the help available.

John is also delighted to talk to anybody who would like to discuss issues in spiritual life, whether Christian or not.

Anne Strauss

Anne read History at Trinity and worked in local government before returning to the College to study law. She practiced as a solicitor in Cambridgeshire before taking a career break to have her children, three of whom are now at university. She was ordained in 2019 and served her curacy in Cambridge.

She is happy to be contacted by any member of the College community about anything they face, whether faith related or not. She can sign post to other services and, like John, works closely with the rest of Trinity's welfare team.
