Our Leadership and Staff
Revd Anthony Barnshaw
Anthony came to Anchorsholme in October 2019 with his wife Sally and their two youngest children. He is originally from North Manchester. He grew up in a non-Christian family but came to faith in Jesus after joining a Pentecostal church youth group. He was ordained in 2005 and has ministered in Salford, Bury and Cheadle Hulme. He is most passionate about the finished work of Jesus on the Cross to die for our sins; Jesus' resurrection from the dead and the hope that gives us of Heaven.
In his spare time he loves to go to the gym, read and watch football, especially Manchester United and FC Utd of Manchester but don't hold that against him!

Shirley is a qualified primary school teacher. She now works full time for All Saints and can be seen out and about in the church and parish visiting people with her husband Steve (pictured). She also works very hard organising groups and events for the church and local community.
Tim Wooldridge and Jacqui Green
Jacqui and Tim, along with the vicar, take primary responsibility for leading All Saints. They have a particular duty to deal with day to day practicalities and co-ordination with the Diocese.
The work Ian does in the Church Office often goes unseen but he is a very important part of our team. He is the first point of contact for many of our enquiries.
Amanda is a primary school Headteacher and so has received Safeguarding training within her profession as well as within the Church of England. She is also an Authorised Lay Minister. She is very approachable and understands the importance of confidentiality. If you have any concerns about Safeguarding at All Saints please do not hesitate to contact her.
