The vicar of Hallwood Parish is Rev Lisa MacInnes.

Rev Lisa MacInnes

My husband Iain and I (and our cat Jack) were called to the parish of Hallwood in September 2012, a few weeks after we were married! I am originally from New Zealand and enjoy being in God’s beautiful and quiet places.  I also enjoy creative activities. Before ordination I was a special needs teacher working mostly in Special Schools and Pupil Referral Units, and I have worked with people with intellectual and physical disabilities. Recently I have learned how to make cards, enjoy other craft activities and share those skills with other people. When I get the opportunity I enjoy developing creative multi-sensory services, courses and quiet days so people can meet with God in a way that is unique to them.

Iain and I have a heart to see God’s word shared, his love shown to all people, and the good news of Jesus Christ made real in people’s lives. We are blessed by having a home we can open up and share hospitality and God’s love with others. Our desire is to join in with those already working in the parish to become another set of hands and feet working together to do God’s will in this place.
Blessings and peace in the name of the risen Lord Jesus in whom we have our hope!
