Ted Schroder was the last of a very select group of people – curates at All Souls Langham Place appointed by John Stott. He started in 1967, and it was while he was there, that Michael Baughen was appointed as Vicar in anticipation of him taking over from Stott as Rector in 1975. Originally from New Zealand, he came to study in Durham and was identified by John as someone who could break the cultural mould at All Souls. Since moving on in 1971, Ted served as Chaplain at Gordon College in Massachusetts and subsequently in several churches in the USA. Married to Antoinette, they have two daughters and four grandchildren. He retired in 2018 and has dedicated his time to writing and blogging.
