Revd Anne Hindle

The congregations in Cotterstock, Fotheringhay, Southwick, Tansor and Warmington were very sad to hear Anne's news that she would be retiring at the end of August 2019.  Anne has ministered God's love with her heart and soul in each village, eager to ensure the worshipping heartbeat is healthy and thriving.  We are immensely grateful for her dedication, commitment and faithfulness.  Read her announcement here



I arrived in the Benefice in January 2016, and am very happy to be in this beautiful part of the country, caring for the five parishes of Warmington, Fotheringhay, Cotterstock, Tansor and Southwick, as your part-time Vicar. I am married to Bob, and have two grown up children living in Suffolk. Please do introduce yourselves to me, and let me know if anyone would value a visit, particularly if they are feeling under the weather. 

Perhaps you are interested to know a little more about me? As a brief resume, I began my working life with a scientific career, and trained as a Lay Reader in the church. I enjoyed that immensely, then felt God calling me to Ordination. Once I completed the selection process and training I spent a number of years as a priest in Colchester, working in a very large and challenging housing estate. I found the people to be warm hearted, and financially generous with their limited income.

I worked as an army Padre for the MOD for several years, enjoying every moment of my time with the Medics for the Paras and Special Forces. I also worked with the Gurkhas in 22 Signals at Stafford, who are the most delightful people, with a great emphasis on family life.

For the next few years I was Rector of five villages in the beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands, with its hidden gems of stunning scenery, friendly people, and a willingness to climb out of the comfort zone to experience church growth and re-ordering of church buildings.  

Following my ministry there, I then spent over four years in two Bedfordshire villages, where the Messy Church for families really took off. With the development of pastoral teams we ensured that we offered loving care to those seeking it. 

I have always had an active involvement in the Christian Healing ministry, which has been a great privilege and a humbling ministry.

God then called me very clearly to the Warmington Benefice with you all. I am truly excited about the way God is leading us forward with a full worship pattern, outreach, pastoral care, and improved facilities in our impressive buildings.

Blessings,  Anne
