Priest in charge - Rev Rich Townend

I'm Rev'd Rich Townend and am thrilled to be the new Priest in Charge of Felton and Longframlington with Brinkburn, Whittingham with Edlingham and Bolton Chapel. I'm married to Emma, and we have three children Belle (14), Jasmine (12) and Zoey (2). We've spent most of our married life living in villages to the south of York, before spending our most recent years in Durham and Bridlington. I've enjoyed almost three fantastic years in Bridlington, being part of a community-focused, growing church. I couldn't have asked for a better training experience and am excited for the next chapter. We look forward to exploring Northumberland, making new friends, and inviting our family and existing friends to discover this wonderful part of the world for themselves. I look forward to getting to know you more and sharing more of our story in the coming months and years. In faith, hope and love, Rev Rich

I am a non stipendiary minister attached to St Michael'€™s and cover some of the services and occasional offices, baptisms, weddings and funerals.

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!
