The post of Preacher is part-time and non-resident. The main responsibility is preaching at morning service in Chapel on twelve Sundays a year and conducting occasional services such as baptisms, marriages and memorial services.

Revd Stephen Baxter is the licenced Preacher of the Inn.

“It’s a great privilege to follow in the footsteps of Bishop Michael as Preacher to the Inn. On Wednesday 15 November I became officially licenced, by the Bishop of London, in Chapel.

With this role I aim to make all feel welcomed. The Chapel is a place of calm, sanctuary, and inspiration available for all and we are fortunate to have wonderful music provided by Chris and the Choir. I am enjoying meeting Members of the Inn and learning about the history and traditions that are kept. I am keen to support the Inn in whatever ways may be beneficial and look forward to hearing ideas on how I may best achieve this.

While I confess to little detailed legal knowledge, since the mid-1980s I have been involved in various aspects of the business of the City, training as an accountant, teaching at business schools and then working in the London Insurance Market. I have therefore some familiarities with the rhythms and rigours of professional services, studying and training.  I felt the tap on the shoulder summoning me to change direction and I was ordained at St Paul’s in 2014. Since 2018 I have been the Priest-in-Charge of St Stephen Walbrook, the church next to the Mansion House where Samaritans were founded 70 years ago.

Please do contact me if you would like to meet for a chat at any time.“

– Revd Stephen Baxter
