There are many people who take leadership roles at St Peters. Some of them introduce themselves below.

Following the retirement of our previous vicar, Paul Knight, we are currently without a vicar. So services are being taken by our licensed lay readers Wendy and Leif, with guest priests visiting from time to time.

Wendy Harper

Wendy Harper, reader at St Peter'sHello, I’m Wendy Harper and have been a Reader here at St. Peters since 1998. Jim and I have two daughters, Sarah and Caroline; two sons-in-law, Martin and Robert; and four grandchildren, Francesca, Erin, Chloe and Daniel. I help by leading Services, preaching and taking funerals. I co-ordinate the Prayer Ministry Team and lead a house study group.

On the fellowship side, I’m a member of the Flower Arranging Group – something I enjoy very much, and love attending social gatherings with my church family, whenever I can. In my home life, I enjoy trips to my static caravan in Ryedale, gardening and lunches out with friends.

Leif Wilks

Leif Wilks, reader at St Peter'sI’m Leif Wilks, and I have been a Reader since October 2006. I share with Wendy the privileges of leading worship, preaching, conducting funerals, and generally supporting the work of our Church community.
