Rev. Richard Andrew – District Chair and Acting Superintendent
I was born and raised in North Yorkshire and after studying philosophy and theology in London, worked in industry for a few years before candidating for the Methodist ministry. I trained in Cambridge and then served in Circuit ministry in Sheffield.
Before joining the district in 2018, I worked as Principal of York Institute, one of the Methodist training colleges, and then as Director of Learning and Development for the Methodist Church based in London.
I am married to Debbie and have two grown up children, Tom and Becky, as well as Ruby, our cockapoo! I have a lifelong and unexplained passion for Middlesbrough FC and enjoy guitar, walking, reading and good company'
