Hello from Sarah Farrimond

SarahFarrimondthumbI was really pleased to be appointed as your priest in charge. I am very much looking forward to getting to know the churches and the parishes as we work out together how to serve God and one another in the coming years. I’m sure there is a lot you would like to know about me. But just to begin with here are a few things.

I have been married to Ken since 1989 and we have 2 adult children: Maria, who is married to Harry and works for a charity and Jacob who has recently graduated from university and is job hunting. Ken, though not himself ordained trained clergy for many years and now works for the Church of England nationally, travelling quite a bit.

I grew up in Bolton in Lancashire and lived in lots of different places (including for several years Uganda) before moving to Mirfield in 1997. We lived there until 2014 when I took up my present post.

I am currently a curate in Birkby and Birchencliffe in north Huddersfield (our northern parish boundary is the central reservation of the M62.) I trained for ordained ministry at the Queen’s Foundation in Birmingham. Before I was ordained I did various jobs in the area of adult education - mostly on church based courses.

In my spare time I enjoy various arts and crafts, theatre and hill walking.

St. Augustine's  Church



St Augustine’s church has given permission to transform 1000sqm of land to the north of the church, into a community orchard and vegetable plots. We need your help to clear the ground and tame a hedge.

Next meet: Saturday March 10th 10-2pm.

Please bring those garden tools (not electrical motor powered) that can be used with confidence and safely to clear the site of brambles, bushes and shallow roots etc

Open to all adults.
