The Reverend Andrew Grant, (Assistant Curate in the Benefice of Bramham) has been appointed as Vicar of the Benefice of Marton-in-Cleveland.
The Reverend Andrew Grant was ordained in the Diocese of York in 2011.
Before ordination he worked in the Armed Forces, latterly as an Army Welfare Officer. Since his ordination in 2011, Andrew has been an assistant curate in the Benefice of Bramham, near Wetherby in our Diocese.
Mr Grant brings work and ministry in a wide variety of contexts, including school governorship, ‘Hineni’, Marriage Preparation for couples and Ecumenical Relations. A keen hiker and lover of music, film and reading, Andrew also enjoys family visits to historical places.

A personal message from me: ‘ I am delighted that our parish is going to be served by such a enthusiastic and caring priest. I am sure he will take the parish forward and build us up in God’s mission.’
Mr Grant will be licensed on Saturday, 17 January 2015 at 3 pm by the Bishop of Whitby in the Parish Church of St Cuthbert, Marton-in-Cleveland.
