Our New Team Vicar is licensed at St John's, welcome to your new role in our parish Laura

Revd Simon Dowson (Team Rector, Assistant Area Dean), Revd Laura Martin (Team Vicar), The Right Revd Anna Eltringham (Bishop of Ripon) and the Venerable Jonathan Gough (Archdeacon)

On Thursday 25th January 2024, Revd Laura Martin was licensed as our new team vicar by The Right Revd Anna Eltringham, Bishop of Ripon in the Diocese of Leeds.

In a wonderfully joyous service in front of a full church of Laura's family, friends and members of our community, Laura made the oaths and declarations and Bishop Anna read the license before Laura was formally welcomed by leaders from the community and by everyone in attendance.

We welcome Laura into her new role within our parish.
