Preacher: The Rev’d Karen Young, Vicar, St James, Heckmondwike (with All Souls, Norristhorpe) and Liversedge
The Rev'd Karen Young is the Vicar of Heckmondwike and Liversedge in West Yorkshire. She grew up in Oxford, studied accountancy and law and worked for Oxford University. From 2004 she was parish finance adviser for the Diocese of Chichester, based in Brighton. She trained for ordination at Cranmer Hall in Durham, completing an MA in Theology and Ministry in 2014 while serving her curacy in the city of Chichester. Karen moved to Yorkshire in 2016 and hopes to settle there, after decades of traversing the country. Her latest interest is the medieval angel roofs of East Anglian churches, which she visits rather obsessively during her holidays.
