Roger Seaton Vice-Chair
I was born in 1946 and moved to Barnet when I got married in 1974, having met my wife, Liz, at All Souls, Langham Place. We have two daughters – and in the last year gained two grand-children!
I have worshipped at Christ Church Barnet ever since. In 1975 I became the treasurer which I did for 20 years. For most years since then I have fulfilled a role of financial co-ordinator. I was church warden for 6 years until 2010 and I chaired PCC meetings for 8 years until 2013. I was also a school governor at Christ Church School for 11 years from 1989.
I qualified as a chartered accountant in 1973 and became a partner in a West End firm in 1980. For much of this time I was the partner in charge of staff, training and administration. I was also the partner in charge of a significant number of audits and independent examinations of charities that we acted for. I retired in 2008 ‘to do something different’.
On retirement I took on the role as treasurer for the Retreat Association and also became a governor at Monken Hadley School. Both these roles I did for over 7 years but I have relinquished in the past year. I was also the treasurer / trustee at All Nations Christian College for 3 years to 2011.
I do a number of independent examinations for churches and other charities and generally seek to try to help charities and people in whatever way I can.
