Memorial service for Archdeacon Sue Pinnington
A memorial service is being held for Archdeacon Sue Pinnington at Newport Cathedral on Sunday 7th November at 4pm.
We invite you to join us as we remember and celebrate the life and ministry of Archdeacon Sue. Remembering Archdeacon Sue, Bishop Cherry said, “We have lost a pillar of our church family and community. Archdeacon Sue had a real passion for the mission of the church. She was full of energy and was hugely popular, both with those she served and with her fellow clergy. She was an excellent and supportive colleague and will be greatly missed. Her death is a huge shock to us all and a great loss. We commend her to God and our sympathy and prayers go out to her family and loved ones.”
Sue Pinnington had served as Archdeacon of the Gwent Valleys since 2018. She was also the Diocesan Director of Mission. She was ordained as a Priest in 1998, having trained at Trevelyan College, Durham, and St Stephen’s House Oxford. She served her curacy in Oakham, Peterborough Diocese and was then appointed Vicar in Cottingley, in Bradford Diocese and, from 2004, an honorary Canon at Bradford Cathedral. In 2008, she was appointed Rector in Houghton Le Spring in Durham where she served for the next 10 years. In 2010 Sue was awarded an MBE for services to the community, pioneering a flagship project to regenerate the centre of Cottingley.If you wish to attend the service, please contact Vicki Stevens, Bishop's PA to reserve your place: email@example.com
