This includes leading worship in our three Churches, being a presence in the wider community through work with schools, community organisations and other institutions as well as having a civic responsibility in the town.

Ian’s role is to offer support to the Vicar and the other clergy, to protect the fabric and inventory of the three Churches and to be welcoming to all who wish to worship in the parish.

Sarah offers administrative support to our churches and runs the parish office. She also works as our Parish Community Development Worker which involves setting up groups, bringing in community support and funding to benefit the wider Baildon community.
