Hello. I am Ian Pruden and I am the presbyter with pastoral charge of Allhallowgate, Ripon; Harrogate Road, Ripon; Bishop Monkton; Boroughbridge; Dallowgill; Grewelthorpe LEP; Kirkby Malzeard and Sawley churches.
This is my seventh Circuit appointment and I've served in a variety of contexts around the country. I'm glad in this appointment to be able to explore church and community partnership in the city of Ripon; develop rural mission in the villages; encourage spiritual growth in people, and work ecumenically. The joy of living in a cathedral city! Lis, my wife, and I are delighted to be back in the north, and to serve God in such a delightful part of "his own county."
