St Andrew’s Church on Bedford Street in Crewe has a new Curate, the Reverend Catherine Cleghorn.
Catherine will be based at the church for the next two to three years and brings a wealth of gifts to her ministry, as well as being able to play the ukulele!
Catherine was welcomed to St Andrew’s Church at a Morning Service on Sunday 29th July 2018, following her ordination at Chester Cathedral by the Bishop of Chester on 22nd July. Priest-in-Charge of St Andrew’s Church, Reverend Lynne Cullens presented Catherine with a bouquet and a card by the Churchwardens, Marta Jones and Alan Hurst, who welcomed her on behalf of the parochial church council (PCC) and congregation. Also present at the service was the Mayor of Crewe, Councillor Brian Roberts and Cheshire East Councillor Jill Rhodes.
Catherine will be part of the core team leading the St Andrew’s holiday fun and food scheme, The Lunch Stop, as well as spending time meeting with members of the church and wider community.
Rev Lynne Cullens said “We are delighted to welcome Catherine to serve her curacy both in our parish and with Rev Jane Colley at All Saints and St Peter’s. Catherine is a teacher by profession and a gifted musician. She has a keen interest in youth ministry which will be a key focus for her here in the months ahead. We are very much looking forward to her contribution to our mission here in central Crewe”.
