Our team vicar for Ingleton and Chapel-le-Dale is The Rev'd Nick Trenholme and can be contacted on 015242 41924 or nick.trenholme@gmail.com

Nick was born in Cambridge but grew up mostly near Bradford (so he counts himself as a Yorkshireman!). He went to university in Durham before working as in youth ministry in Northampton. He trained for the ministry in London, and was curate in Northamptonshire before moving to Ingleton in 2016. He is married with two children. 


Our team vicar for Burton in Lonsdale and Thornton in Lonsdale is The Rev'd Denis Tate (who is House for Duty) and can be contacted on 015242 61579 or revden@hotmail.co.uk

He was a teacher for 35 years and the Secretary of St.Thomas’ Lancaster and later, on the leadership of King’s Church Lancaster. He served his curacy with the Bishop of Lancaster in Shireshead and Galgate with pastoral responsibility for the latter. He recently completed a second M.A. (this time in Theology).
