Reverend James Harvey
James is the vicar at St Michael and All Angels as well as at St Mary’s Longframlington and Brinkburn Priory. He is also part of the Diocesan Children's and Youth Team.
He longs that church would be accessible to everyone and seeks to ensure the message of the Gospel can be applied to everyday life. James has a heart for growing St Michael’s through discipleship and demonstrating the love of Jesus to others, outside the walls of church, in the communities and situations where we live and work.
James is married to Ruth and they have two teenage children.
Rev Gabby Llewelyn
I am a non stipendiary minister attached to St Michael's and cover some of the services and occasional offices, baptisms, weddings and funerals for James.
I co-lead a morning housegroup on a Thursday called Coffee + and am involved in follow up of enquirers. I have a heart for mission and Christian healing and generally keeping my eye open for people who may be finding life tough. It thrills me to see people digging in on their journey and reaching their potential.
I live outside the parish with a small dog called Joy, which she is!! I am a Southerner and love the North East!

James is a youth worker at North East Youth for Christ. James works across the region as a youth and sports worker and has a passion for sharing the gospel with young people in both sporting and creative ways.
James is a big Nottingham Forest fan and when he’s not doing youth work he can be found eating copious amounts of Ice Cream!
