Clergy and Churchwardens

 

Revd Louise Taylor-Kenyon - Vicar of St Mary’s

I have been at St Mary’s since October 2010, and share my time here with a training role for the Diocese of Leeds.  I love living in this part of North Yorkshire, and brag to my friends that the milk that I buy in the village shop has been produced by a co-operative that takes milk from the cows across the road from the Vicarage.  Being a Vicar means that every day is different, but my underlying hope is that St Mary’s is a place where everyone can come in and meet God in a range of different ways, and that we go out to show God to the world around us.

Revd Tim Calow - Associate Priest

I have been living in Embsay since 2000 and serving as Associate Priest since 2016. I love serving in our active church community in a variety of ways. The base here in our community supports my wider activities as Police Chaplain in Skipton and on the railway along Airedale.

Revd Bob Mitchell

I am a retired priest, living on the north side of Skipton and part of the Ministry team at St Mary's as of June 2018. My 40 years of ordained ministry included a lengthy spell in HM Forces as an Army Chaplain, which has provided a very broad perspective on life, and some challenging experiences!

Peter Edwards - Churchwarden

Bridget and I have been living in Embsay since 2012. We are both retired and have enjoyed becoming involved in the activities of this friendly village. As churchwarden at St Mary's, I take a principal interest in looking after the building as well as helping to plan the future of this worshipping community.

Liz Roodhouse - Churchwarden

I have lived in Eastby and been a member of St Mary’s congregation since 1978. I am passionate about social justice issues and regularly have a Fairtrade stall in church and take it to other venues in Embsay and further afield. It is a privilege to be a churchwarden, be part of the All Age Worship team and responsible for Smiley Faces, our Friday afternoon session for pre-school children, parents, grandparents and carers. I also enjoy managing the St Mary’s Facebook page and making sure that the church noticeboard is always up to date and looking attractive. A warm welcome for everyone and clear, meaningful communication are my priorities. Finally, I do my best to make sure that our vicar doesn’t work too hard – not an easy task!
