Announcement about Ministry in Kirkburton
I am pleased to announce that the Revd Stephanie Hunter, Assistant Curate in the Benefice of Cumberworth, Denby, Denby Dale and Shepley, will be seconded to assist on a part-time basis in the Parish of Kirkburton with immediate effect.
As part of the local ministry cluster of parishes, Steph is already licensed to assist in Kirkburton. She will continue in her current role on a part-time basis.
This arrangement follows the resignation of the Revd Amanda Grant as Vicar of Kirkburton and Shelley and her appointment as Interim Priest in Charge of Shelley and Bishop of Huddersfield’s officer for work with children and young people, with effect from 19th April 2020.
Steph will work with the Churchwardens and PCC of Kirkburton to sustain and take forward the ministry of the parish, and I am most grateful to all concerned for their support.
The Rt Revd Dr Jonathan Gibbs
Bishop of Huddersfield
