We are a team of seven churches working together to make Christ known in, and serve the people of, the Holme Valley. There is a renewed sense of excitement about the gospel and about what God is doing in this valley. We would love you to be part of that!
On this site you will find general information about our Team and upcoming events. There are pages for each of our churches with links to individual websites where you can find out even more.
If you’re unsure which church is closest to you, just enter your postcode and in the church finder and let the internet do the rest!
May God bless on your journey
The Revd Dr Jonathan Gibbs (aged 53), has been Rector of Heswall in the Diocese of Chester for the last 16 years. Before that he was Chaplain at Basle with Freiburg-im-Breisgau, in the Diocese of Europe from 1992-98.
Jonathan says: “I am delighted to be coming to Yorkshire and to be joining the new Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales at this exciting time. Toni and I are thrilled to be moving to such a great part of the world, with a wealth of culture in its towns and cities as well as beautiful villages and countryside. I am looking forward to working with the other members of the Diocesan team to build up the life of our churches both numerically and spiritually and to contributing to the life of the rich and diverse community in West Yorkshire. I am also very partial to a pint of Timothy Taylor’s “Landlord” and am looking forward to getting to know some more of the local brews!”
Jonathan is married to Toni. They have three children, Harriet (24) who is married to Matthew Curry, Edward (21) and Thomas (18).
