Macclesfield Express - - WHAT’S ON -

ST Christo­pher’s Pott Shrigley has wel­comed a new Priest in Charge, the Rev­erend David Swales.

Revd David was in­tro­duced at a spe­cial li­cens­ing ser­vice at the vil­lage church.

Fam­ily and friends of Revd Swales joined parish­ioners in a packed church to take part in the ser­vice which saw Revd Swales li­censed by Bishop Peter the Bishop of Ch­ester.

The ser­vice was led by the Vicar of Bolling­ton, Revd Canon Veron­ica Hy­don, and the Archdea­con of Mac­cles­field the Ven­er­a­ble Ian Bishop who de­liv­ered the ser­mon.

Revd Swales said: “I’m look­ing for­ward to be­ing part of com­mu­nity life, to be in­volved with the peo­ple, and tak­ing ser­vices. It’s still early days but I want to work with peo­ple here and find the best ways of serv­ing our com­mu­nity.”

Pott Shrigley’s new Priest in Charge, Revd David Swales, has moved to St Christo­pher’s from his pre­vi­ous post in Suf­folk. He is orig­i­nally from Lan­cashire and he trained at St Johns Col­lege, Univer­sity of Durham.
