SASRA Welcomes New Ministry Director

Revd Philip Parker

SASRA is pleased to welcome Rev Phil Parker as the new Ministry Director. Phil started last week and has already helped the team at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

Phil spent most of the last ten years in church ministry in the South of England, having had lengthy experience prior to that managing school Chaplaincy teams and as an Army Reserve Chaplain with 10 PARA and 21 SAS. 

“It’s been really helpful to get an idea of how SASRA operates and meet the team and ASRs during the Military Tattoo. I couldn’t imagine it taking place without a ‘tea room’ so the fact that SASRA historically has that spot is amazing.”

As Ministry Director, Phil’s role is to oversee the spiritual and physical well-being of the Readers.
