Associate Minister: Rev Dr Jenny McKay

Jenny is a Minister in Secular Employment. She fulfils her life as a priest both in the workplace and at church and enjoy meeting people from all nationalities and cultures and discussing faith issues. She joined us in October 2022 after being based in a rural parish church in Great Budworth for 22 years (from confirmation into the Church of England,  to training as an ordinand, and then a curate.) She has a virtual community of followers on her @thereverendvet social platforms.

She is married to Dave, who is a GP practice manager in Liverpool. His hobbies are education on climate change and Nordic walking. They have three cats that keep them on their toes!

Curate in Training: Rev Jane Crook

Jane is married to Andy and they have three children, who are now all young adults: Holly and James live with them in Woodley and Katie lives in Crewe. They also have a 6-month-old Westie puppy, called Robbie. They have lived in Stockport for the last 14 years and she grew up in Knutsford, so Cheshire is very much her home.

Before she was ordained, she was a teacher; She started off as a primary school teacher but gradually moved up the age range to teach GCSE students. She really enjoyed teaching pupils of all ages.

She was ordained in 2022 and has been serving as Curate at All Saints’ Church, Marple and St Paul’s Church, Strines, since then. However, during her training she did placements at St Thomas’ Church, Mellor and also in the Parish of Stockport and Brinnington, where her husband, Andy, is now the Curate.

When not working, she likes to spend time with her family, read a good book, go for a walk (often with Robbie, the dog), have coffee with friends or listen to a podcast at the gym.
