Our Vicar - Rev'd Nathan Thorpe
Nathan has been Vicar of St Giles since May 2020.
He grew up in Widnes, St Helens & Warrington and spent his teenage years attending concerts with long hair. He also played the drums with friends in local bands.
After studying Ancient & Medieval History in Wales while working as a cleaner and bartender, he trained for ministry at Crammer Hall, Durham.
He met Poppy (who is also a priest) in Durham and they got married in 2017 while serving curacies in Formby. Poppy is Vicar at All Saints with St Frideswyde's, Thornton & Crosby. Their daughter, Sophia, is shuttled back and forth between churches!
He enjoys playing pool and supports St Helens RLFC & Liverpool FC. He likes a beer, baking and will laugh at even the most terrible puns!
You can contact him at the Vicarage, on 0151 280 3883, or email email@example.com.
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
Assistant Priest - Rev'd Sue Smith
Rev Sue is a retired parish priest, previously having served in two parishes in the Liverpool diocese and a large parish in Manchester. Originally from South Yorkshire, she moved to the south of England with her husband Roddy and was ordained in Oxford in 1997.
Looking for a church to settle in after retirement they found the welcome at St. Giles irresistible and are very happy to have found a good place for worship and where an extra priest can be useful.
Rev Sue has two children and four grandchildren; she loves walking, gardening, and anything to do with steam trains!
