The Venerable Peter Delaney MBE,
Archdeacon Emeritus and Director of the London Internet Church
Peter Delaney was Archdeacon of London from 1999 to 2010 and Priest in Charge of St Stephen Walbrook since 2004. He is a man with a passion for the arts and communication as a means of understanding humanity and God. After a classical art education and a brief period teaching he worked for NBC television in Hollywood and here found his vocation to the Anglican Priesthood returning to England to read theology at Kings College London.
He served at Marylebone with Chaplaincies to the National Heart Hospital and London Clinic. He was Chaplain at the University Church of Christ the King. From there he was invited to become Precentor and Residentiary Canon at Southwark Cathedral, where he developed an arts programme of exhibitions and theatre and theological training.
Trustee London Internet Church
Martin Sargeant works with the Archdeacon of London and is Operations Manager for the Diocese. One of the founding trustees of the London Internet Church, Martin has a keen interest in ‘improving non-verbal communications’ and sees the internet as one of the ways we can achieve this in relation to the church. He recalls one of the most moving experiences of his life as attending the ordination of a friend as a Roman Catholic priest – his friend being deaf, and the service having a deaf choir performing.
