Paul and Wendy Skirrow

We are Wendy and Paul and we are very pleased to be here receiving such a warm welcome as Paul fills a six week locum chaplaincy post.

Where do you come from?

We are both from Leeds, born and bred. The Yorkshire accents have already been recognised! We are now retired to Pateley Bridge in the Yorkshire Dales in a Parish with six churches, one dating back to the monastic days of Fountains Abbey.

We have two married sons – Paul in New Zealand and Tom in Bristol. We have 2 granddaughters (6 & 4) in Bristol and 2 (2 & 8 months) in New Zealand. Wendy went out to NZ last June for the birth of Molly; Paul went out in November to Baptise her.

 

What did you do before retirement?

Immediately before retirement for just over four years we were wardens of a Retreat Centre Ferrar House in Little Gidding, famous for Nicholas Ferrar, who appears in the church calendar on 4th December and who, with his extended family, was known for a life of prayer and good works at the beginning of the 17th century. Little Gidding is also known because the poem of the same name by T S Eliot in his Four Quartets. The Retreat Centre was a quiet place for prayer and reflection.

 

Before that Wendy was in charge of the administration for the School of Medical Education in Liverpool University with a large staff to take care of 1700 students and teachers, engaged in a complex curriculum.

Paul’s ministry has been mainly in Liverpool Diocese, and was at first in Industrial and Urban Mission. Much of his work was with marginalised people such as unemployed people, those in poverty, those in badly paid work, poor communities, etc. He played an active role in a network of similar people across Europe.  Educationally Paul’s Masters was largely about his Industrial Mission work. He has since undertaken extensive biblical studies especially Matthew’s Gospel
