Who’s Who


Rev. George Reeves is the Rector.

I’m really pleased to have taken on the role of Rector.

Having grown up in Wigan, I spent 20 years working in insurance for the Co-op in Manchester prior to ordination.

More recently, I’ve spent my curacy in Ashton-under-Lyne, serving the 5 churches of the Parish of the Good Shepherd.

I’m married to Katie and have sons, Dan & Nathan.

Rev. Harriet Tate is the Associate Minister.

Harriet leads the Wednesday evening Bible Study & Fellowship as well as leading services and preaching.

Until recently she also taught in a primary school.

Val Penoyre is a Reader.

She leads Sunday worship, preaches and helps lead the music group as well as a variety of roles behind the scenes.


Each parish has Churchwardens, who are the bishop’s officers in the parish. They have particular responsibility for church buildings – among other things!

Val Turner and Francis Mundangepfupfu are the Churchwardens for St Peter’s.

Liz Archer (picture above) and Samantha Collins (below) are the Churchwardens for St Mark’s.

Our Safeguarding Policy is the Safeguarding Policy of the Diocese of Manchester.


The leadership team is strongly supported by both Parish Church Councils and many others with particular responsibilities for Sunday worship and/or midweek activities.

If you would like to know how you can get more involved, come and speak to us on a Sunday or at one of the other activities.
