Lore Chumbley is our priest-in-charge. Lore was a Consultant Hand Surgeon in the Liverpool Plastic Surgery Unit for 20 years until 2013, when she decided to spend more time on the Church. She was Curate at St. Thomas’ Stockton Heath and St. Mary Magdalene from 2011 to 2016.
We are fortunate to have two other priests in our congregation, who also help to lead services at Christ Church.
Cliff Burrows has given many years’ dedicated service to Christ Church as a non-stipendiary minister. He retired from his official role as Christ Church’s Assistant Priest-in-Charge at Easter 2010, but he has the Bishop’s Permission to Officiate and continues to be very supportive.
Simon Tatton-Brown worked as a probation officer in Manchester before training for ordination at the College of the Resurrection (Mirfield). For six years he was Chaplain to the Bishop of Manchester, and he’s been a parish priest in Prestwich (north Manchester), Westhoughton (near Bolton) and Chippenham. When he retired in January 2014 he joined us at Christ Church and sings in the choir, as well as preaching and presiding on a regular basis.
