Our vicar

 I'm Richard (he/him) and I've been vicar of St John's since September 2017. In January 2022 I was also appointed Mission Community Leader for Mission Community 5 in the Manchester South and Stretford Deanery.

I'm passionate about creating an inclusive learning environment where spirituality can be explored and where contemporary issues can be reflected upon theologically. I love radical theology and enjoy thinking about religion and theology in the context of our evolving spiritual landscape.

I don't see it as my job to tell you what to think, but to help you work out for yourself what you do or don't believe. If you would find it helpful to speak to someone and chat things through then please get in touch to arrange a conversation. 

I am married to Suzanne and we have two children. In my spare time I enjoy reading, playing chess, watching rugby, and working out.
