Rev Andrew Foreshew-Cain (previously Andrew Cain) is an Anglican clergyman. He has been vicar of St Mary with All Souls, Kilburn and St James, West Hampstead since 1998.[1]

In July 2014 he married his partner Stephen Foreshew, despite the Church of England having forbidden its clergy to get married to their same-sex partners.[2]

In October 2015 he was elected to the Church's General Synod.[3]
