A little bit of news I have been waiting to share…

Last year I was approached about another role, not a move away but something different. Covid has unfortunately delayed the process but I am now able to announce that in addition to the work I already do I am now also Chaplain to the Police, based in Workington and covering an area from Silloth in the north to Millom in the south and Threlkeld in the east. In addition I will also be providing chaplaincy to the Fire and Rescue service in Workington.
I had the pleasure of my first chaplains group meeting last week, and, following a retirement, have also taken on the role of Interim Co-Ordinating Chaplain for the emergency services in the county.
Current restrictions make this a role I haven’t quite been able to get my teeth into yet but hopefully in the not too distant future it will happen.
It’s a really exciting opportunity and I am pleased to be able, at last, to share this news 😁👮🏼‍♂️
