The Parishes of Dunham Massey

Who’s Who?

Both churches share clergy who are responsible for the spiritual direction and overall leadership of the congregations. They are supported in this role by church wardens (allocated to each church) as well as the PCCs.

Our Clergy

Priest-in-Charge: Rev Aled Seago

Aled was licenced as our Priest-in-Charge in May 2021, after three years as a curate in St George’s Poynton. He trained for ordained ministry at Oak Hill College in North London, following four years working in a trainee role in Hartford, and Winsford, both parish churches in this diocese. Aled is married to Jo, a published author, and they have a very friendly Staffie cross mixed breed dog called Chewie.

As well as responsibilities in our church, Aled serves as school govenor at Altrincham Church of England Primary School (our church school) and Bowdon church school. He is also a vocations advisor for our deanery, and teaches church history on the North West Partnership Ministry Training Course.

Aled is passionate to welcome people of all ages and backgrounds into our churches, and share with them the hope that Christ brings.

Curate: Rev David Murray

Dave came to us as Assistant Curate in Training in May 2022, after a thirty plus year career in the Royal Navy followed by coaching rugby at an international level. But God had other plans for him he was ordained deacon in 2020 (with the usual process and timing disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic) and ordained priest at Chester Cathedral by Bishop Mark on 19 June 2021. 2021 was also the year of his Ruby Wedding anniversary to Sally. They have two grown up sons, Will and Ollie.
