Who & where?‎ > ‎

Vicar and Curate:


Vicar: Revd Katie Tupling


I was licensed into post in a service held at Christ Church on Saturday 9th November 2013
by Rt Revd Steven Croft, Bishop of Sheffield. Previously I served 4 years as Curate in Belper (near Derby), and then I was Vicar in the Hope Valley (Hathersage, Bamford and Grindleford churches) for just over 6 years.
 
With a background in youth and children's work I have a desire to see all ages know Jesus and grow as disciples.
 
I also look to resource and develop people as leaders, and to create opportunities for people to encounter God for themselves.
 
Living with a disability (Cerebral Palsy), I have an interest in what it means to believe in God who heals, and yet I still remain disabled.  I am a founding member of a user-led group, delivering  training to churches and organisations on issues of disability awareness and access to all, 'Disability and Jesus' 
 
I was appointed 'Bishops Advisor on Disability and Inclusion' to the Sheffield Diocese in 2016


I am part of 2 National Networks:

'Awesome' - Anglican Women Evangelicals: Supporting our Ordained Ministries  http://www.awesome.org.uk/ 
 
'New Wine' - a network of evangelical churches http://www.new-wine.org/ 
 
I am the founder of the 'Clergy Mummies' Group on Facebook
 
And I love narrowboats, my husband, my son, real ale, and Jesus...!

Ali trained at the Yorkshire Ministry Course, ordained on the 5th July 2015 and Priested on 25th June 2016, at Sheffield Cathedral.
