Young People and Families Pastor: Tony Harris
Tony has now joined the team at CRB and is very much looking forward to navigating his way around Sheffield and indeed South Yorkshire as well as getting to know the church and members and of course the young people. He is a passionate sports and Rugby fan. He describes himself as a “manic southerner heading north with a head full of ideas and a belly full of laughs.” No one is contradicting that definition. Tony is a family man with a beautiful wife (Sarah) and 3 adorable boys (Euan 9, Nate 4 and Cody 2).
