The Rev'd Chris Howden
Ecumenical Minister (Baptist)
I was ordained as a Baptist Minister in 1999 and became Minister at Levenshulme, Manchester where I had been Student Minister during my training. After 3 years there, we moved to Burford and my husband and I shared pastoral charge for 3 churches, Burford, Ducklington and Arlington (Bibury) for 6 years.
Another move took us to Milton Keynes where I became Minister at Christ Church, Stantonbury, part of an Ecumenical Parish of 6 churches and I had the pleasure of being part of a team with Anglican and Methodist Ministers. We moved to Witney on my retirement in June 2014 and we have been attending St Mary's since Autumn that year.
I am married to Brian, also a Baptist Minister, have a daughter and a son and 5 granddaughters. I enjoy travelling in our caravan, eating and cooking, and have recently taken up patchwork and quilting.
