New member of staff for St John’s Newcastle

The Parish of St John’s Newcastle are delighted to announce the appointment of Ashleigh McCartan as their part–time Families and Outreach worker. 

Ashleigh, pictured above with with her husband Mark, lives in Newcastle and is a regular worshipper at St John’s. She brings a wealth of experience of working in different settings to the role and has been leading the Sunday School. 

Ashleigh said: “I am really excited at the prospect of working alongside the Rector and building up our links with families in the community and with our many visitors to Newcastle over the summer months.” 

Taking the step to prioritise children and young families has been a blessing to the whole church family in St John’s Newcastle. Watch the rector, Revd Myrtle Morrison, share the story as part of our Transformations series for Lent 2023.
