Father Clive Pearce




Father Clive Pearce

Sadly, Father Clive passed away in the early hours of the morning of Saturday 26th March. 


Father Clive Pearce would have celebrated 50 years since his ordination as a priest on 29th September 2016.  Sadly, following a short illness, he passed away on Saturday 26th March at Northwick Park Hospital.  He had been the parish priest of Hatch End for 43 years and will be much missed by his family, close friends and parishioners, with whom he had enjoyed many wonderful and some sad times. He had a very big heart and helped people through troubled times with great compassion as well as practical and spiritual support.  He was installed by Richard Chartres, Bishop of London as ‘Prebendary of the Stall of Nesden’ at St Paul’s Cathedral on 30th March 2008. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this very sad time: his wife Yvonne, his brother Michael, his four children: Edward, Elaine, Emily and his three grandchildren, Sebastian, Harriet and Ruby.

The church is now in interregnum and services continue with the support of several priests.  Enquiries about the vacancy at St Anselm's should be addressed initially to The Bishop of Fulham.
