Meet the Staff Team

Toby & Helen May


Toby & Helen came to Glossop in September 2018, when Toby became Vicar. They are passionate about growing together as a church in our love for God, for one another and for our community.

Previously, they served in churches in Cheshire and Cumbria. They have two daughters and they both love hill walking. Helen is a keen gardener whilst Toby is a Blackburn Rovers fan (possibly evidence of a sense of humour). In the past, he worked in the oil industry and he owns a mischievous blue dog called Paws.

Jane lives in Glossop with her husband Tom and two children Jack (15) and Henry (11). Jane has been in her role since September 2013. As well as Parish Operations, Jane is active in helping to organise church events, is PCC Secretary and Chair of the Fabric team.  She enjoys talking to others about her faith and seeing and being a part of what God is doing in Glossop through outreach and mission. Jane enjoys reading, cooking, keeping fit and spending time with her family and friends. She can even be seen cheering on the sideline at Rugby!

Julia Wilkins

Schools and Young Families Outreach Pastor

Julia is excited about the opportunities her role brings to build relationships within our church primary schools and secondary school, helping children explore God’s story and faith in Him. She is married to Rich and has two daughters Molly and Eleanor who are both at primary school. Julia leads FLAME with her husband Rich which is a mission area team for schools and young families.
