St Margaret's welcomes The Revd Alex Crawford as our new vicar.
Fr Alex was licensed at St. Margaret's on Sunday, September 5th.
Prior to ordination, Fr Alex read Theology at University College, Durham, and worked at Durham Cathedral for four years as the Liturgical Assistant. He trained for ordained ministry at the College of the Resurrection in Mirfield, before serving his title at two churches in Gateshead.
Fr Alex is married to Natalie, and they have five children who are very excited to meet everyone: Joscelyn (8), Evelyn (6), Madeleine (4), George (2), and Amelia (5 months).
Fr Alex says: “We have already fallen in love with the church and the area, and we’re sure we’re going to be really happy here. It is a great privilege to serve you as your Vicar, and I’m so excited for all that lies ahead.”
