    A message from Loveday:

    I’m delighted that we can now confirm the appointment of our new Vicar at St Philip & St James. His name is the Revd Robin Pye, and he is currently serving as curate at St Peter’s Hale. He will be formally instituted as our new Vicar by Bishop Libby on Monday May 15th at 7.30 pm. We look forward to welcoming Robin and his wife Marian to Alderley Edge.

    A Message from Revd Robin Pye

    This is a picture of me outside Chester Cathedral just after I was ordained priest.  Somebody took a picture of me with my wife Marian, my daughter Leyla, my son Danny and his fiancé, Tharanny.  As you can see it was a very happy day.  It was only less than a year ago.

    And it is with great happiness that I look forward to moving to Alderley Edge, getting to know everybody at St. Philip and St James, serving the church as we love God with all our hearts, minds, souls and strengths and showing the people of Alderley Edge that we love them as we love ourselves.  See you soon.  Please pray for us as we plan the move as I have begun to pray for you.


    Bishop Libby will also be visiting our church on Sunday May 7th at 10 am for our annual Confirmation Service. This is a great opportunity for anyone who would like to deepen and confirm your faith — please get in touch with me (0161-439-7946 or loveday.alexander@btinternet.com ) for details of our ‘Faith Xplorers’ sessions for adults and young people.

    May I take this opportunity to wish you God’s richest blessings for 2017!

    God bless, Loveday.
