Edward Pogmore

Associate Priest

I worked ten years in parish ministry as a Curate and then as a Team Vicar on a new housing estate in Poole in the Salisbury Diocese where we built a new church in bricks and people. I have, for the last 30 years, specialised as a Health Care Chaplain.

As Chaplaincy Team leader at the George Eliot Hospital at Nuneaton I worked within the Health Service. Also, I was Hospice Chaplain and later served as Chairman of the Mary Ann Evans Hospice and now as a Patron. Since retirement from the NHS in 2014 I have worked developing Chaplaincy with the Abbeyfield Society who have sheltered housing and care homes throughout the UK. As a Canon Emeritus of Coventry Cathedral I served on the Cathedral Council from 2000-2024.
