We take this opportunity of introducing our new Rector, Rev’d. Peter Mullins.
Peter (pictured left) will be coming to us from the Parish of Great and Little Coates with Bradley (which is the western slice of Grimsby, North Lincolnshire) where has been fulfilling his mission as Rector.
Born in Zomba, Malawi in Africa Peter, who is 57 years old, was first ordained 33 years ago and first worked in parishes in Reading (Berkshire) and Grimsby.
During his time in Grimsby he has played a role in both education and community development and was the lead Governor of the local Further Education and Higher Education College.
He has also taken a role in clergy training. He worked full-time running the in-service training of clergy for the Diocese of Lincoln before moving to Grimsby.
Peter recently published a small book of his own poems and he enjoys engaging in historical research, most recently in the reading room of the Imperial War Museum working on the letters of the officer who commanded the ‘Grimsby Chums’ on the first day of the Battle of the Somme.
He is married to Deborah who is a medal-winning artist in textiles.
Peter said: “We are hugely looking forward to coming to live in Haworth and working alongside the voluntary clergy and lay readers in the churches there as well as at Cross Roads and Stanbury.
“It will be an exciting final stage to my ministry among the large number of people who come to seek out the Bronte heritage as well as those who need committed Christian communities to make a real difference ot lives locally.”
