Heavenly Father,
into whose hands Jesus Christ commended his spirit at the last hour: into those same hands we now commend your servant Philip, that death may be for him the gate to life and to eternal fellowship with you;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

A bit about the Vicar...

Paul was appointed Vicar at

Christ Church back in

September 2012. Ordained

in 1997, he spent the

previous 16 years as school

teacher, mainly in

Bradford, but began his

teaching career in Clifford.

After his curacy he became Vicar of Laisterdke and Tyersal in 2000 and was appointed by The Bishop of Bradford to be 'Mission Priest' in the parish of Baildon in 2006.

A teacher of PE and a keen sportsman in his younger days, Paul still plays golf with a handicap of 16.3, and is a member at York Golf Club in Strensall. He has served as Club Chaplain for both Bradford City FC and York City FC, but slipped out of Sports Chaplaincy to become honorary Chaplain at Archbishop Holgate's School here in York in September 2018 until July 2020. Presently offering 'Pastoral Support' to the members of York Golf Club.
