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

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. 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.

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.
