Sue McWhinney

Hello, I’m Sue, and I have been the Curate here in Calverley since September 2017. Until recently I worked in an assistant role alongside Phil Arnold, and I have been covering the Vacancy at St John’s in Farsley for most of 2020. I am now working full time at St Wilfrid’s again, helping to cover the Vacancy here alongside Robin Gamble.

In a former life I worked as a GP in the York area, and spent time at home bringing up our children. Our family enjoy anything to do with the outdoors: walking, climbing, camping, though I draw the line at my husband’s interest in caving!

I’m involved in all aspects of the life of St Wilfrid’s, and I love the fact that our services are so accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds, that we have so many children and young families in church, and that we’re so involved in local schools.
Before COVID 19 we were actively opening up our beautiful church for a number of community events, including Coffee Shop on Fridays, where you could always get a good cup of coffee and meet someone friendly. We miss those opportunities, and we are working on re-introducing such things when the restrictions allow.

I’m really interested in helping people to discover life-giving personal faith in Jesus Christ, and my prayer is that wherever you are on your journey of faith, you will find something here that will help you to make a deeper connection with God.

Do say hello on a Sunday morning, or drop me an email. I’d love to hear from you.
