Revd Lynn Grove  

"Lynn is associate priest in the Helmsley and Upper Ryedale benefices. Her main responsibilities are in the parish of Upper Ryedale, but she does regular services in Helmsley, and is available when the vicar is away.
Lynn says: "I very much enjoy being part of the team in Helmsley. I have been here since February 2012. I trained for the priesthood at Cranmer Hall, University of Durham after taking early retirement from a long and fulfilling career in medicine, as a psychiatrist and lastly as a General Practitioner. I served my training curacy in Pickering and then stayed on as associate priest, for 8 years in all. I now spend approximately half of my time as a Spiritual Director and the rest in Parish duties. I love to cook, walk and travel with my husband, John, who is such a support to me in the Parish. We will soon celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary! We have 2 grown up daughters and 3 grandchildren."
