At Your Service: Luke's familiar

  • Description

    Northern Echo 27th September 2003. "St Luke's Church, in Ferryhill, has withstood many changes in its 150 year history, but retains its warmth as well as its characters...."Despite all that's happened, it's still a vibrant place," said Keith Lumsdon, Vicar since 1988 - when he had hair and is said thereabouts to have resembled a dog collared Jimmy Nail - and a friend since his courting days in Shildon, getting on 20 years before that.... Keith's predecessor from 1895-1940 had been the affectionately remembered Canon Thomas Lomax, son of Lord Lomax, who at his own expense, established mission churches in outlying communities like Dean Bank, Ferryhill Station, East Howle and The Broom and who looked rather like one of those visiting village hall lecturers so popular in the Just William books...."
