Revd Jonathan Bish
The Reverend Jonathan BishI read law at Oxford University, where I discovered the Church of England and began discerning a call to the priesthood. I then spent a year working as a pastoral assistant at St Alban’s Cathedral before training at Cambridge, where I completed a BA in Theology and Religious Studies. I discovered the north of England while on a long placement in Salford, and an offer to serve my curacy in Halifax followed!
My training continues at the Minster, where I’m involved in all aspects of the Minster’s ministry and have particular responsibility for our initiation ministry and for our pastoral ministry team. My passion is helping others discover the Christian faith, and sharing the riches of Christian prayer and the Christian theological tradition.
I’m married to Jo, who is curate of Todmorden, Walsden and Cornholme, and we enjoy good books, good beer and good conversation.
