United Reformed Church Minister

I came to join the team as Minister at Longcauseway Church in August 2015 and I divide my time between the 5 Churches in the SPACE Group of Churches. Before training to be a Minister I worked for many years as a Church Community Worker, and in the voluntary, charity and community sector, as well as a networking role within the South Western Synod of the United Reformed Church as Synod Pastoral Advisor.  I'm enthusiastic about Longcauseway’s work of sharing faith, hope and love in the heart of Dewsbury and for enabling people to find ways to encounter God through Jesus Christ in ways that are creative and inclusive of all.

Rebecca Thornton

Church publicity officer/ lettings manager

My role at Longcauseway is more so a purpose than a job. I am passionate about promoting God’s Love in every capacity and I feel that my role here provides a platform for me and the church to do just that.

I manage all areas of the Church’s marketing along with management of room hire.
