Church members were delighted by the announcement, at this Sunday morning’s services at Burneside, Grayrigg, Selside and on Zoom, that Rev Tricia Rogers, who has taken part in many of our Zoom services during lockdown, is to join the Beacon Team from September. Stepping up to take the place of Canon Nigel Davies, who is now settling into his new job in Salisbury, she will be licensed for the role of Interim Priest-in-Charge of the Beacon Team Ministry on 1 September by Bishop James. The appointment is for two years.
Recently Tricia has been working with the Kendal Methodist Circuit, supporting Sandylands, Stricklandgate and Fellside, and before that she was Vicar of Binsey in north Cumbria and became leader of the first mission community in the county. Tricia is also the Diocesan Disability Advisor and plans to continue in that role.
We would like to welcome her to the Beacon Team and wish her all blessings in her new post.
