Team Rector - New Team Rector Announced
The announcement of the next Team Rector for the Ingleborough Team was made on Sunday 16th July. The official announcement is copied below as well as some words from Revd Peter.
“The Bishop of Leeds is pleased to announce the appointment of the Revd Canon Peter Greenwood, currently serving as Rector of Gillingham & Milton on Stour & Vicar of Silton in the Diocese of Salisbury, as Team Rector of the Ingleborough Team Ministry in the Ripon Episcopal Area. The Licensing Service will be conducted b the Rt Revd Nicholas Baines on 26th October at 7pm.”
“My name is Peter Greenwood, at the moment I am the Rector of Gillingham, Milton on Stour and Silton in Salisbury Diocese. I was delighted to accept the invitation from the Bishop of Leeds to be Team Rector in the Ingleborough benefice. I am very much looking forward to living and working in Bentham and beyond.
A little bit about me - as you’ve guessed from my family name, I’m from Yorkshire. I grew up in Wakefield. I’ve worked for the Church of England in Belper and Silsden as well as North Dorset, where I live and work at the moment. In between Belper and Silsden I was a mission partner with the Church Mission Society for five years and vicar of Islamabad in the Church of Pakistan.
I love walking, cycling and generally being outside, and I am looking forward to getting to know your patch of the world. I love my job too, and so whilst I will miss the churches and communities of North Dorset, at the same time I am looking forward to worshipping God with you, getting to know you, following the risen Jesus, and sharing faith and fun, good times and harder times together. I’m looking forward to meeting you. God bless. Love Peter”
