Hannah to be new deacon

Have your say

A NEW deacon is to be ordained at Sheffield Cathedral this weekend.

Hannah Jackson, who has been actively involved with the church from an early age, will serve as a full-time pioneer minister at Christ Church, Pitsmoor.

She said: “As part of my training I have already begun working at Christ Church on placement so intend to hit the ground running when I am ordained next month.”

The Bishop of Sheffield Dr Steven Croft is to ordain Hannah on Sunday, July 1.

She has lived in the city for nearly four years and has been involved with the church from a young age.

After studying theology and ministry at Durham University she was involved in young adults work, including creating a new congregation in a local bar.
