Holy Trinity has both full-time and voluntary staff.
Our vicar is Revd Ian Blake (see bio below); he took up his post here at Trinity in October 2015.
Supporting the church's ministry are four Diocesan Readers: Nigel Andrews, Dave Parkinson, John Perret and Paula Sargeant. Our administration is managed by Nikki Jackson in the Church Office. For enquiries, the office is located within the church hall.
Ian was born and grew up in Chester. He became a Christian after a journey into faith as a teenager, and he was baptised and confirmed at 15. After a short period as a journalist, he went on to study at theological college at the age of 18. Ian and Anne were married in 1979 and have two grown up daughters. They enjoy walking, bird-watching, food and wine, and are committed to a life in Jesus of adventure and transformation.
I was appointed Pastoral Outreach Worker in June 2014 following 12 years in the property industry and a further 8 in education. My 8 years as a worshipper at Holy Trinity was preceded by more than 30 at Zion Methodist so, although a Lancashire lass, I'm told I almost qualify as a local!
My vision for this role is to see the lonely and isolated of our parish and community meet with Christ through the love and service of those who belong to Him.
I am married to the saintly Gary with whom I love to visit what we now refer to as 'our summer home' – the Greek island of Lesbos. I am also blessed with the most wonderful family and friends.
I moved to Boston, and joined Holy Trinity Church, together with Hilary and the family, in 1989.
As Lay Pastor and Reader, I lead services, preach, teach and help with the wider pastoral care of the church. In line with this, I host a home group and currently lead the Healing Prayer Team. I am now retired from consultant surgical practice.
Leisure interests include: enjoying making music (I'm an organ anorak!), gardening, DIY, the family and grandchildren.
After retiring from a career in education and working in Horncastle (where I was in charge of the typewriting department!), Boston and Donington, I retired in 2010 and trained as a Diocesan Reader. In this role it is a joy to help in the support of churches and chapels in the surrounding area as well as preaching and teaching in Holy Trinity.
My involvement in Christian Explorer and Discipleship courses offers the opportunity to present the Christian faith in accessible and clear ways and also aims to help all who come to continue and deepen their walk with the living God – a privilege indeed.
I still manage some running, and enjoy gardening, walking in the Lincolnshire Wolds and the Lake District. I also sing regularly in local Folk Clubs.
I have been a Diocesan Reader for just under twenty years.
I am a retired teacher and spend much of my time, amongst other things, representing Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) in Lincolnshire.
CSW is an organisation supporting persecuted Christians in different parts of the world.
I joined the staff at Holy Trinity as Administrator in January 2007 after 20 years in the banking industry. My job is wide and varied with no two days being the same! I have been part of the Church Family for over 30 years. I am married to Ant and we have a daughter called Eve. We have a wide range of interests including collecting hedgehogs (mine) and daleks (his!) and Disney Princesses (Eve's)!
I enjoy being part of a thriving church and am looking forward to seeing what God has in store for us in the years to come.
