Hi, I'm Catherine and I am Local Pastor in the Ripon and Lower Dales Circuit with a particular focus on the areas of Bedale, Masham and Snape. I have a heart to care for people both inside the church and outside in the wider community. I want people to know how much they are loved by God and I seek to do this by meeting them where they are and ministering to their needs in whatever ways I can. My job allows me to do this through a wide variety of activities ranging from Messy Church to dementia friendly worship and activity afternoons whilst continuing to look for new ways to reach out to the community. I feel blessed to do a job which I enjoy and which I believe God has called me to do and to do it in such a beautiful setting.
