Another Anna Chaplain for Cumbria!

Updated: Mar 4, 2021


We are delighted that Margaret Tate is up and running as an Anna Chaplain in Low Furness. We'll let her introduce herself as we wish her well in her new role:


 

As the saying goes ‘It’s good when a plan comes together.'


When God’s plans come together, watch out!! When I look back, I can see how it has worked for me.


Years of taking me down different paths, different experiences, different Christian traditions, until I have arrived at the right place and time at the Church of Low Furness in South Cumbria.


I am Margaret, an ex-teacher who took early retirement in 2007 to look after my mum. We had eight fun-filled years together before her death in 2015.


Since then, I have become a Local Lay Minister with the title of Pastoral Assistant, a Licensed Eucharistic Minister and a member of the Pastoral Team and the Reconciliation Team.


Over the years I have been involved in a Local Ecumenical Project, a church plant, healing ministry and Cursillo, to mention but a few!


God has always been laying our older friends upon my heart. During the first lockdown my thoughts and prayers were constantly with them, especially as I could not visit the local care home. The thought of friends alone in their homes filled my prayer time.


This past year I have felt that God had a new plan for me. In January, Anna Chaplaincy kept coming at me from several directions. And here we are!


I am excited at becoming an Anna Chaplain and I wonder where God will be taking me next!
