Rev Richard Atkinson is, Conference permitting, to be the new Circuit Superintendent minister and minister of Aylesbury from September 2019. He will follow our present Super, Rev. Helen Kirk who in summer, will become the new Chair of the Chester and Stoke-on-Trent District.
Richard is currently Super of the Skipton and Grassington Circuit where he has been for ten years having previously served in the Bradford (as a full time school chaplain), Clitheroe and Nottingham Circuits. His wife Louise is currently a vice-principal of a Bradford secondary school. They have two children Ben who is currently teaching Music and Fran who is her second year at the University of Gloucestershire studying Social Care. He has been known to play golf badly, loves to cook, enjoys reading and the theatre and as both he and Louise are history graduates anything historical is of interest. We look forward to welcoming Richard and his family when their time comes to head south.
