Revd Jo Smith - Vicar   The Wardens
Jo has been our vicar since December 2019.  She is a southerner by birth but a northerner at heart, having been up here since she came to University in Salford.

She longs for people to know the difference that Jesus can make to their lives.  Before joining us here, she was curate in Horwich and prior to that was a Youth & Children's Minister in 2 different churches.

Jo enjoys spending time with family, friends and her many godchildren, travelling, cooking and she even tries her hand at growing fruit and veg in the vicarage garden!  She is also chaplain to Ironman (a long distance triathlon race, and no she hasn't done one!).




 
  Andy Grant (the one on the left with the smart tie) has been a warden here for quite a few years now. On Sundays he can usually be found at the back of church with the other warden, Kelv, trying to make the Vicar giggle at inappropriate moments.

It was two vicars ago when Andy became warden. He thought that the then vicar had come round to look at the new website he had just built but when the vicar was leaving having looked at the website he casually asked the somewhat surprised Andy if he would consider becoming a warden. The rest, as they say, is history.

Kelvin Bushell is a relatively new warden compared to his mentor Andy, having only become warden one vicar ago.

You will normally find Kelvin at the church door to welcome you before the service with Andy, before they retire to the back of church to look after us during the service.  During Communion, Kelvin will happily offer you a steady hand coming down the steps, back from the rail, if you need it.

Revd Amy Bland - Curate    
Amy started as our curate in July 2021. She is originally from Cambridge but after working in a church in Blackpool for a year, she knew the north west was the place to be.

Amy loves seeing the transformation Jesus can make in people's lives both in big and small ways, and is excited to help introduce people of all ages and backgrounds to Jesus.

Amy loves all things outdoors, including walking and camping. She is excited about the abundance of hills up here, compared with the very flat Fens where she grew up.
