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.
