5 Churches - One Saviour

The Parish of Central Telford is one Parish but made up of four different Churches ... Holy Trinity, DawleySt John's LawleySt Leonards, MalinsleeSt Mary's, Ketley, and Christian Presence a community gathering based in Stirchley and Brooskide . Each of these worshipping communities has its own style of worship and the best way to find out whether you might find a home in one of them is to have a look at their website (click on the links above) and come along to one of the services there!

Whilst we have a number of staff (meet them all below) , the aim is that all of us in the Central Telford Parish are equal members in the body of Jesus Christ on earth (aka the Church!) and so everyone has a part to play - however young or old, fresh to the faith or spiritual old-timer, male or female ... God doesn't worry about these things as much as people do! We'd love it for you to become part of the family of Central Telford!

The Revd Anne Roberts
... joined the team in July 2020 as Interim Minister(0.8), until such a time as a new full time Minister can be appointed in 2021. Anne will usually work Monday – Thursday, as well as on Sundays. Joining the Parish during Lockdown has brought some challenges but as we start to gather in the four churches again, she is looking forward to getting to know the congregations and to sharing in their journey of faith in these uncertain times. The one thing she is certain of is that God will be with us, whatever the next year brings. Anne is married to Kevin, who is also ordained and is the Director of ReSource, (formerly Anglican Renewal Ministries). They are both part of the new Telford Minster congregation, soon to move into Meeting Point House, and Anne is keen to explore how this new initiative can bless the traditional churches of Telford. We share the same hope, that many more people in Telford will come to know Jesus. Anne has three grown up children and five grandchildren, all living at a distance so holidays are often important family times.  Anne enjoys a good long walk, preferably on an empty beach, with the promise of a coconut ice cream at the end of it! She has no inbuilt compass and regularly gets lost in Telford. If ever she is late for a meeting, that will be why! You can contact Anne by cicking here.
