New Assistant Priest Appointed

The Reverend Laura Rhodes has been appointed Assistant Priest at St Mary's.

Laura (née Pickering) has returned to St Mary's after nearly 20 years away. Until recently Laura was serving her curacy at St Bartholomew's and St Anne's in Wilmslow, prior to which she trained for the Ministry at Ripon College, Cuddesdon.
At St Mary's, Laura will be particularly involved in the children's ministry, including Messy Church and Storytelling.
On Sunday 16th July, when Laura presided at the 10.30am service, her mother, Maureen, was the preacher, whilst dad, Colin, was the crucifer. A real family occasion!

St Mary's is delighted to welcome back Laura, together with husband, Mark, and children, Annabelle, Rowan and Francis
