Rachel Sheehan

Rachel will be based in the centre of Wigan. It  is a mixed mode curacy split 50/50 - 50% based in a Church plant called Gateway in the middle of one of the shopping arcades within the centre and the other 50% spent in the more inherited model of parish ministry, across a variety of churches within the partnership. Rachel is particularly passionate about pioneering, being creative, starting new things and about meeting people who are on the edges of our society.
