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.

Temporary Chaplain

Born and bred in the bustling and cosmopolitan city of Moscow, Olga moved to Cambridge to read theology at Corpus Christi College and train for Anglican ordination at Ridley Hall. She then came to Trinity to pursue a PhD in Old Testament studies.

Olga lives in Girton with her husband, Simeon. In her spare time, she enjoys long-distance walking.

She will be glad to talk to members of the College community about any matter of faith and life, or simply to lend a listening ear.
