Revd Stephen McKenzie 

Rector 

I’m married to my loving wife Gill and we have two children and ‘delightful’ twin grandsons!  

I have a doctorate in Metallurgy. I love caravanning, all sport, the group Muse, bird photography, Liverpool FC & making music.

I have been a follower of Jesus Christ from my early teens. I have worked for Youth for Christ, trained at Oak Hill Theological College and served as a curate at St Botolphs Church, Barton Seagrave.

The words of this modern Christian song describe my love of God and my priority of ministry within the churches I serve as Rector ;
"Knowing you Jesus, Knowing You. There is no greater thing. You’re my all, you’re the best, you’re my joy, my righteousness and I love you Lord.”

Drew Walker 

Curate

I first felt God’s nudging over 20 years ago, but ignored this for many years. In 2008 after many years working within the commercial flooring industry I felt it was time to stop and listen to God properly.

I went to Liverpool Hope University as a ‘mature’ Theology and Religious Studies student. 

I can often be found being exercised by my two dogs across Cheshire fields, enjoy reading, listening to all types of music and laughing, lots.

Andrea Butler

Administrator

Together with my husband David I trained for lay ministry 28 years ago.  I became a Christian in my teens after making a commitment to the Lord at a Billy Graham rally.

In the late seventies I was zapped by the Holy Spirit and the rest is history. 

Sadly David died in 2015 and I am just picking up ministry again. I help with the home groups, particularly the Yarnfield ladies group, lead services and am Administrator for the benefice.

Alex Baines

Children's and Families Worker

I have 2 children and live in Stone, been coming to St Marys for just over a year, and had a childcare career spanning the last 20 years.

God is first and foremost in my life and I hope to encourage many children and their families in their faith over my years in the role. I will be introducing new things and will be very welcoming of any feedback to continue growing the children’s work here at St Mary’s.

John Addison

Reader

Ever since I became a born again Christian in my teens I have enjoyed going to church.  

I lead and preach once a month and often lead the service when the Vicar is preaching.


Freda Bishop 

Reader

I am a Christian because I try to follow the Way of Jesus Christ as I believe Him to be the Son of God.

As a Lay Reader I am licensed by the Bishop to lead services and to preach.

Paul Graetz 

Reader

I believe that God is always with us and that he will look after us and give us the strength to cope with any situation which we face.

I also think that it is important to worship God regularly with other like-minded Christians and that we all do need to remind ourselves before God that we are not perfect.

I lead services and take assemblies in school.

At church I enjoy the Worship, Fellowship and the occasional Alleluia.

June Steed

Reader

I became a Christian when I was 19 and understood what it was to know Jesus personally. Going to church has become part of life.  

As a Reader I take services about once a month I run a Growth Group on Tuesday mornings.

Chris Stokes 

Reader

I go to church primarily to worship God and to give thanks that Christ made such a sacrifice for me. 

As a Reader I deliver Home Communion to those unable to attend church, and I do a variety of jobs, including minor repairs and assisting with Mums and Toddlers, as well as being Church Warden.
