New Curate

Many of our parish will by now have made acquaintance with Ali Miller who was ordained deacon in Durham Cathedral during July.  Ali will serve as curate of our parish for the next three years.  Ali is married to Andy, the new vicar of Tanfield with Burnopfield and Dipton.  They have two daughters, Lucy (12) and Beatrix (10).  The family previously lived in Barnard Castle where they enjoyed parish life whilst Andy served as curate, after training for ordained ministry at Cranmer Hall.  Ali followed in Andy’s footsteps after hearing God’s call to serve the church.  They are now settling into life in Burnopfield.  We extend a huge welcome to Ali and her family and wish Ali every success as she takes up her new role as Curate of the Parish of Lanchester and Burnhope.
