Christ Church Greenwich announces the hiring of a new clergy member, Deacon Tim Hamlin. He will be the Assistant Rector of Congregational Life and is in transition to become a priest in 6-12 months.
“We are thrilled to have the Rev. Tim Hamlin joining the Christ Church Greenwich clergy staff,” said the Rev. Marek Zabriskie, Rector of Christ Church Greenwich. “Christ Church has been blessed to have scores of new members and young families join us over the past five years, plus we have over 100 children in our preschool. Tim will not only broaden the access to priests for everyone, he will also help us connect more deeply with young families and involve them in ministry, worship, and service.”
Tim grew up in upper Manhattan. He was a member of St. Michael’s Episcopal Church on West 99th Street, where he was baptized, confirmed and sang in multiple choirs. He graduated from Pitzer College, one of the Claremont Colleges in California, and was sponsored for ministry by the diocese of Los Angeles. He worshiped at St. Mary’s Episcopal and attended Episcopal Divinity School at Union Seminary in New York. Tim is married to Henley Cox and they have a two-year-old son, Silas, with another child due in October. A newly ordained deacon, he looks forward to being ordained to the priesthood in January and is delighted to be joining the staff at Christ Church.
