Canon Mark Tanner
To all at St Mary's, Radcliffe on Trent & St. Peter and St. Paul, Shelford

Sue and I are absolutely delighted to be joining you in early September. Radcliffe and Shelford have always held a special place in our heart — I recall arriving as Curate with our first son, Jonathan, who was only one at the time. It's a sign of how time has flown that he is now in his thirties! I have to say that God's guidance was clear as we applied for the position. The welcome we received and the thoroughness of the interview process left me with an overwhelming sense of God's guidance and I was thrilled to receive the call from the Archdeacon of Nottingham offering me the position.

David T Photo From my childhood I have attended church on a regular basis. I had an early insight of the duties of a churchwarden, as my father held that position for many years in our small rural parish in Oxfordshire. I also sang in the church choir for a number of years – until my voice broke.

SueI was born in Leicester, and lived in various places in Leicestershire until my mid teens when my Dad's job took the family to Suffolk. As well as working full time my Dad led several village chapels over the years as a lay Pastor. At age 13 I realised that I had to make my own decision to be a Christian I couldn't rely on my parents faith, Jesus had died to forgive my sins and he wanted me to follow him.

Joan PhotoI was born and brought up in Leeds. As a child I was taken to church regularly and attended Sunday School from the age of five.

I and my family have lived in Radcliffe since 1969 and have worshipped in St. Mary's since 1975, following a renewal in faith and a personal commitment to Jesus Christ.
