The Revd Stephen Burgess

Revd Stephen Burgess

Revd Stephen Burgess is chair of the York & Hull District of the Methodist Church.

He initially trained as a chemist and after some years in industry and teaching served in two school chaplaincy appointments before becoming superintendent of the Cambridge Circuit and then moving to Yorkshire.

He is deeply committed to sail training with young people and skippers yachts for the Rona Sailing Project. He feels that sailing is a marvellous metaphor for chairing a district - or maybe it's the other way round?

Barbara and Stephen Burgess have two young adult sons, Christopher and Jonathan.
