Reverend Lesley Hinchcliffe has been appointed as the next vicar of Fence-in-Pendle and Higham.
Lesley, who worshipped for many years at All Saints’ Church and made such a big contribution to the life of our parishes, was ordained in 2016 and is assistant curate of St Peter’s Salesbury. Once her curacy has been completed she will take up her new role, on a half-time basis.
Sharing the news of her appointment, Lesley said, “This is such a wonderful blessing – there is no ageism with God! I’m 62 and I about to start another amazing adventure with Him!”
Welcoming the news, Revd Toby said, “What great news! Please pray for Lesley as she prepares to become vicar of her own parishes – may God richly bless her and her ministry.”
