Meet our clergy and staff:

The REv. Reed J. LOY - Rector (Pastor)

Reed joined St. Andrew’s as rector in the Summer of 2017. He grew up on his family farm in Epping, NH. Through the love and encouragement of many dear mentors, he has found a home in the church during travels across the state, the country and the globe. He studied Plant Biology at the University of New Hampshire. Following work in campus, youth, justice, and parish ministry, he received his Masters of Divinity from Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, CA.

From Reed’s early prayers at the dinner table, camps, and on Sunday mornings, through the joys and challenges of life since, he finds himself today in a relationship of “deep trust and a good dose of playfulness with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.” He loves prayer in words, song, writing, drawing, silence, sport, and through the sharing of stories. He loves games intellectual and physical, competitive and recreational, particularly soccer.

Reed lives with his wife, Linden Rayton, and their kids Laurel and Julian in Contoocook.
