Licensed Lay Minister (Reader)

Dudley Hilton is a Licensed LayMinister (Reader). He retired early, in 2010, after 37 years working in London, latterly for one of the “Big 4” firms of chartered accountants, and he now relishes both the hours gained through no longer commuting and the ability to “potter” without feeling (too!) guilty.

Married to Pat, they have two adult children, one of whom is married, and presented them with their first grandchild in May 2012. Dudley became a Christian about 20 years ago after being dragged along by Pat to a Parish Weekend – the shock of finding that Christians were actually quite normal and not Bible-wielding fanatics made him want to find out more – and they have been worshipping at Busbridge since then. Dudley also helps leads the 6.30pm Congregation.
