New Vicar for central Accrington

Hi everyone. I am the new vicar for St James in the town centre and St Paul's on Plantation Street. I am here with my wife and youngest child. We have known and visited Accrington for a long time but only just moved here from (most recently) Warwick. We have been missionaries in East Africa and I have previously been a vicar in Kelsall, Cheshire.

Fiona teaches Pilates and is trained as a physiotherapist. Our son is about to start A levels. We have a daughter at York University, another daughter currently working on cruise ships around Australia and New Zealand, and our oldest daughter is married, lives in Cheshire, and works in her local bank.

I enjoy running, local history and fixing things that are broken.

If you see me around do say hello.

Ian

Pilates? Are they the albino Brazilian street waifs we've heard so much about? Won't be an overcrowded class will it?
Welcome anyway.😊

Re: New Vicar for central Accrington

Welcome to the forum Ian my names Jason.
I was wondering what the chances of arranging a visit to St James's was?
I'd like to take a few pictures from the roof area of the belfry as well as the other area's of the church.
If you was willing to allow such a visit it would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome brother Ian .

Beware of the history .

As the Blessed John Henry Newman said : “To be deep in history, is to cease to be Protestant.”

I wouldn't mind betting that Ian is our first 'man of the cloth'. Am I the first 'tall man dressed in blue' ?
