Who's Who?

All kinds of people are involved in the life of St James.


Here are some useful names of those who might be able to help you.

 

Priest-in-Charge

Rev Lesley Chapman, appointed as Priest in Charge on 19th July 2016.

 The Revd George Proud

Curate - retired

Dorothy Dryden - Retired with permission to officiate.

I was licensed as a Reader in 2004 and have been an Agricultural Chaplain at Hexham Mart since 2011.

 

 Peter Ryder

Reader

Being a reader at St James - and being trained - has been a rewarding and interesting experience as part of the Ministry Team in a varied and supportive congregation; I am still learning. Standing in the pulpit and wearing a frock was not something I ever thought I would end up doing! I think God likes surprises.

I get to play a bit of guitar as well.

Roderick Duff

Church Warden

Jenny Mathers

Church Warden

I moved to Riding Mill, with my husband and two daughters in 1984, and was welcomed into the fellowship of  St James Church. As time progressed,  I have taught in the Sunday School and helped run the church Youth Group. Now, as a Churchwarden for the second time, I enjoy supporting Lesley, our Vicar, and working with the other Churchwardens on matters from wobbly headstones to helping in the planning of services. It is a joy to interact with a wide range of people, of all ages, from our Village and visitors who join us when on holiday or for special services.

Church Warden

Robert Laws
