The Fellside Team, formed in 2001, consists of 5 parishes situated in some of the most beautiful countryside in the Diocese of Blackburn with easy access to the M6 giving excellent links to major towns and cities in the North West, as well as to the Lake District, the Trough of Bowland and the Yorkshire Dales.
Jill Duff, the Bishop of Lancaster writes:
When I minister in this team, my heart is always warmed by the discovery of hidden treasure.
There are stellar lay leaders, rich opportunities for the gospel, centred on five churches poised at the heart of village life, being ancient wells of worship over hundreds of years. Church buildings and parish halls are in good order. We are praying for a Rector to “lift the lid” on this hidden potential. To re-excavate the deep wells by prayer. To encourage and call out gifts in our leaders of all ages and stages, firing up the faith. To courageously make the most of the opportunities offered by these churches, with their wonderful array of four schools and amazing head teachers of faith.
