The Reverend Christopher Stoltz has been a Minor Canon at Westminster Abbey since February 2014, when he began as Sacrist.
As Precentor, he is responsible to the Dean of Westminster for the daily worshipping life of the Abbey, and for designing and planning many of the special services which characterise its unique life.
Christopher Stoltz came to Westminster Abbey after four and a half years as Chaplain of Trinity College, Cambridge. Before taking up his post in Cambridge, Christopher served a curacy at Saint Michael's Church, Highgate, London.
Brought up in the US, where he exercised a ministry as a Lutheran pastor and cantor, Christopher brings both an ecumenical and international dimension to the work of the Abbey.
