New Superintendent Minister

Rev. Ann Varker

New Superintendent Minister

In September 2020 we were pleased to welcome our new Superintendent minister, the Revd Ann Varker, along with her husband Julian.

Ann has been a Methodist minister for 22 years, having previously served in appointments in Somerset, Buckinghamshire and, most recently, her home county of Devon. Having candidated for ministry in Kendal she is excited to be returning to the North of England although the Tyneside area is new to her.

Ann is deeply committed to releasing the gifts of all people within the life of the church and seeks to work in collaboration with others, as companions on the journey of faith. Having a passion for mission she is looking forward to getting to know people in this area and working together to discern God’s vision for the years to come.
