Rev. Karen Hanford
Karen lives in Beeston and was ordained in 2017, having studied at St John’s College, Bramcote. She is married to David and they have a son, Richard, who is also a Vicar. Karen served her Curacy at St Leonard’s Wollaton and is currently Associate Minister in Stapleford. Karen will be coming to lead ACT Churches in March 2023
Before ordination Karen had worked as a Probation Officer, an Advisor with the Citizens Advice Bureau and as a Legal Secretary.
Karen and David enjoy hill walking and love heading off to the Lake District, North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales, as well as the Peak District, whenever time allows. They enjoy setting themselves new walking challenges and have completed the Coast to Coast walk from St Bees to Robin Hood’s Bay and most of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
Karen says: “One of the greatest joys in ministry is seeing people come to faith and also growing in faith – stepping out and doing new things in response to God’s call. I look forward to seeing where God will lead us in 2023.”
