The Revd. Hugh Burton 

Team Rector

I studied theology at Edinburgh University, spending two years working in Japan with the Church Mission Society, and returned to complete my training for the ministry at Cranmer Hall in Durham. I am married to Alison, and subsequently spent 12 years in Leicestershire, first as a Curate in Coalville, before becoming Vicar of Packington and Normanton-le-Heath.

We moved to Kidderminster in 1996 with our children. For 12 years, I was in charge of St Chad’s and St Cecilia’s churches. In 2012 I became Team Rector of the new Parish of Kidderminster East including the five current churches.

For all the ups and downs, joys and frustrations, I love being in this job.  I long to see more people touched by God’s love in Jesus, and having their lives transformed by Him. I am also committed to seeing us take better care of the environment – so I cycle wherever possible!

The Revd. Robert Legge

Team Vicar

Originally from Northern Ireland, I became a Christian when I was 14 years of age and after leaving school I trained as a youth worker at University where I met Helen who would later become my wife!

After having spent a period of time working in North Belfast in the early 1990s, I moved to England to become a Youth Worker in a large secondary school in Buckinghamshire where I spent 16 very happy years working at the school.

In 2015, after ministerial training at Ripon College, Cuddesdon, I became the Team Vicar in the Parish of Kidderminster East. 

I am interested in helping Christians to live their Christian lives wherever God has placed them and not just to see faith as only being relevant to church on Sunday.

In my spare time I enjoy reading and playing music.
