Our Circuit Staff
"Hi, I'm Grace, I'm the superintendent which means I keep an eye across the whole circuit, supporting colleagues and the leadership of the circuit. I look after the congregations in Coniston, Ambleside and Hawkshead as well as being responsible for looking at ways introducing Jesus to folk outside the churches. I also love to spin, knit and weave and do enjoy a cold dip in a lake! Contact me about Baptisms ,Weddings or Funerals in Coniston, Hawkshead or Ambleside, as well as anything to do with the Circuit more generally. I'm also the designated complaints officer for the circuit"
