John Farr

john_farrJohn is Churchwarden at All Saints Isleworth and in the past held the position of treasurer. It was during John’s role as treasurer that he began transforming the way the church conducted its financial matters, reducing the number of cheques written from hundreds to 2 per year and eventually completing a totally ‘paperless’ year-end in 2013, via an agreement with the firm of accountants. He was also responsible for setting up a cloud system to manage information flow and improve collaboration within the various teams at All Saints.

KB365-LogoHe, together with Jyoti Banerjee under the banner of KiteBlue 365, have since helped a number of churches and charities apply for and receive cloud services free of charge, and assisted them in training and re-designing existing processes enabling organisations to keep their costs low.

John is a strong advocate of collaboration and information sharing, and believes it is key to supporting growth within a church.

John and his wife Rebecca live in Twickenham and is a relatively new dad to two wonderful energetic children – praise God!

Ant Kelly

Ant KellyAnt Kelly has been a member of All Souls since 2006 and helped to migrate the All Souls website from Joomla to WordPress in 2010. Last year he rethemed the website and continues to help maintain it as part of a small team.

Ant has a degree in Graphic Design from Chelsea School of Art and worked as a model maker and set designer in the Animation industry for 12 years before moving into freelance web design. There is nothing he likes more than taking a client’s clunky old website and turning it into a shiny new one, in fact he feels it is his civic duty. He particularly enjoys working with arts organisations and charities, helping them get the most out of their budgets and totally exceeding their expectations.

Ant lives in Isleworth with his wife and two daughters and when not chained to his computer he likes to get out on his trusty bike or indulge in some photography.
