Rev'd Garry Whittaker

I was ordained in 1991 after training at St. John’s Theological College Nottingham. I was Curate at Christ Church Denton (with St. George: Dane Bank) from 1991-1995. I then moved to Holy Trinity: Waterhead: Oldham as Priest-in- Charge 1995-2005. I then became Team Rector of Bacup and Stacksteads from 2005-2015. I became Team Vicar of the Fellside Team in September 2015.

Within the team I am responsible for St. Hilda, Bilsborrow and St. James Whitechapel. I am Chaplain to Myerscough College and Chaplain to Butler’s Farmhouse Cheeses (Inglewhite.)

I am married to Deborah and we both share an interest in music (rock/pop.) We enjoy going to concerts and also watching them on DVD.

I have a life-long interest in Rugby League, supporting my home town team Leigh. My other team is Rochdale Hornets, I was chaplain to the club before my move here to the Fellside.

I also enjoy body boarding on holiday and recommend Croyde Bay in Devon.

I play the guitar and sometimes use it in the services, I also play bass and enjoyed being part of the music group during my time at Bacup.

Celebrating the Fellside 20th Anniversary Pilgrimage ....

At the time of writing this we are in the process of celebrating the Fellside 20th anniversary pilgrimage, a series of walks around the Fellside ending each day with a service in one of the churches. The theme for these are the fruits of the Spirit as described in Galatians, love, joy, peace, gentleness, faithfulness, self-control, patience, generosity and kindness.
