Revd Anthony Barnshaw

Vicar

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!
