New Urban Pioneer Minister

Here’s a message from Clare:

Thank you for the invitation to come join the community in Girlington, Heaton and Manningham.
I am super pleased to come and make my new home amongst you. I’m excited about getting to know you all, spending time finding out what’s going on, joining the adventure of what God is doing in the community,  sharing your dreams for the future and seeing what God has for us all in the process.

 

I am a Keighley born girl and a self-confessed Brass band nut so the prospect of “returning to a place of home” with the adventure of living and working in the community , trying to love well and share Jesus with people, alongside the opportunity to play some great Brass Band music feels like an amazing invitation, I’m excited for what the future has for us all.
