Canon Angela's final service


On Sunday May 1st, Canon Angela announced her retirement.  Her final service will be on Sunday 31st July at 4:30pm at Christ Church.

Ordained Deacon, in 1996 by the Bishop of Wakefield, and Priest in 1997 Angela served as curate at Holy Nativity, Mixenden and Christ Church, Pellon before becoming Vicar at St. John’s Bradshaw and St. Andrew’s Holmfield. 

Prior to leaving Bradshaw and Holmfield Angela was made an Honorary canon of Wakefield Cathedral 

Angela was installed as Priest-in-charge of Christ Church, Sowerby Bridge by Bishop Tony Robinson in July 2010 and became Vicar a year later. 

Over the years Angela has served as chaplain to the Mothers’ Union, a member of the Diocesan Synod and Assistant Diocesan Director of Ordinands.

Speaking of her retirement Angela has said “I have been privileged to serve in Calderdale for 26 years and have met some wonderful people along the way. It will be a real wrench to lay down parish ministry but I look forward to what the Lord has in store for me in the next stage of my journey.”

Angela and her sister Susan will be moving into the Huddersfield area and we at Christ Church will miss them dearly.

As a parish we will continue to pray for Angela and Susan.
