Our clergy, Adrian and Helen Thorp, were licensed to this parish (along with the parishes of Hurworth, Dinsdale and Girsby) in February 2017. They are with us for three years as Interim Ministers to support the churches through a time of transition.
Adrian and Helen met and married whilst in ‘vicar school’ back in 1979, and have enjoyed sharing ministry together in a variety of contexts in the north of England. Their passion is for lives to be transformed by the love of Jesus, and for gifts to be affirmed, released and nurtured in community together. Other important aspects of their lives are family, friends, walking, reading and art galleries.
They are delighted to share ministry across the parish with gifted lay leaders.
