A message from your new vicars!

Hello everyone

By now many of you will know that we will be joining you at St Paul’s In a few months’ time. Just in case you thought that we were a figment of your Church Wardens’ imaginations, we thought we’d drop you a line and introduce ourselves!

We first met when we were at college in Nottingham whilst we were training for ordination. Hils had worked as a Dietitian in Leicestershire, supporting children and young people. Mike had had a long career with Manchester City Council, working in housing and urban regeneration. Mike was ordained in 2014 and Hils the following year.

We were married in 2015 and our little boy came along last July.

We have both completed curacies in Manchester: Mike’s at Brunswick Church in Ardwick and Hils with the Victoria Avenue Mission Partnership in North Manchester. Although our curacy experiences were very different, we enjoyed our parish training and learnt a lot from it. Since October 2017, Mike has been working as a chaplain at Wythenshawe Hospital whilst Hils finished her curacy and maternity leave.

Since we got married, we have been exploring the possibility of working together as ordained ministers. We applied for the post at St Paul’s on a job-share basis as we feel that we have complimentary gifts and skills that can support the church at St Paul’s and the wider Withington area. We were drawn to the post because of your desire to be a welcoming and inclusive community where everyone can experience God’s love and grow in faith and belonging.

In her spare time, Hils enjoys being creative with music, fabric and food (although not all at the same time!). Mike enjoys nature and is looking forward to getting his gardening gloves on at our new home. Our baby is coming up to 7 months old and is full of cheeky giggles and chuckles! We have a little naughty cat called Cleo and she and our baby are good friends.

We’re really looking forward to joining you in April and will value your prayers as we settle into our new roles and our new home.

Mike and Hils Corcoran
