  1. I’m guessing you either came home on the train, or didn’t have much mail on your return from the Leaders conference?

    Any more than 12 followers is too many…..

  2. Great list and blog Peter.

    I’m CofE but on secondment to New Zealand:
    @richjohnson St Paul’s Auckland (

    Also worth adding:
    @joeyjep London College of Fashion chaplain
    @jonmarch HTB


  3. Great site – great page – great idea.
    I am a Catholic priest in Stoke-on-Trent and so far as we can find out one of only three Catholic clergy who are currently tweeting in the UK.
    On the numbers as they currently stand it would seem that I would take second place on your league table … not that I am bragging of course!
    God bless all you in all your work.

  4. Hi Peter

    Seems to have slipped off the list – probably my own fault for changing my user name. ‘pgw71’ became ‘paulwalker71’ (ostensibly to match my Facebook and other social media user profiles)

    Think I probably should be well up in the clergy list with my 340-ish followers :)
