THE “MINISTRY TEAM” 

As we now have a regular “team” leading our services we thought it would be good to formally introduce them to everyone! 

Mother Enid Briggs – Holds a General Licence for Bishop Julian. Previously she was Associate Priest at St. Leonard’s Walton-le Dale where she lives with her husband Stuart and two cats! She is self-employed in the accountancy sector.

Revd.Dr. John Darch – Is the Diocesan Director of Ordinands and Curate Training for the Diocese. Previously he was a tutor at St John’s College, Nottingham. Before that he was in parish ministry serving in Litchfield and Chester Dioceses, and was the Rural Dean for Hyde near Manchester.

Revd. Gill Dyer – Has recently moved into Mellor having retired as Priest-in-Charge of Whalley, Sabden and Pendleton. Gill is also part of the Diocesan Advisory Team for Spiritual Direction.

Revd. Canon John Hartley – Was the Vicar of Salesbury St. Peter and Area Dean for Whalley and has regularly taken services for us since his retirement;  and he and his wife Janet are very  involved the life of St. Mary’s Mellor.

Revd. Gary Hunt – Has served as a Non-Stipendiary Minister at Balderstone St. Leonard and since retiring has continued to be closely linked to Balderstone and now regularly leads worship at all three churches in the United Benefice.

Father Roland Nicholson – Has been a priest in Blackburn diocese for 41 years, serving as both Vicar in a number of parishes and as Industrial Chaplain for BAE Systems. At present he is looking after St Stephen’s, Tockholes. For the past five years he has been a “familiar face” at Mellor and Balderstone and for the past two years has regularly presided at St Leonard the Less, Samlesbury as well.

Mrs. Pam Daunton – Is the Reader at Samlesbury Church and while St. Leonard the Less remains the focus of her ministry, she also takes occasional evening services at St Mary’s, Mellor 

The United Benefice are enormously grateful for their ministry to us.
