Revd David Payne took up the post of Superintendent Minister on 1st September 2020.

After a career in banking, David trained as a Methodist Minister at Wesley College in Bristol and became a Circuit Minister in the Middlesbrough & Eston Circuit in 1995.

In 2002 he moved to another Circuit appointment in the Farnworth (subsequently Farnworth & Worsley) Circuit.

In both appointments David served as a part-time hospital chaplain and asked the Methodist Church to consider his calling to enter this style of ministry on a full-time basis. The Church supported this and David has been in hospital healthcare chaplaincy since November 2006. Initially this was in Gateshead before he was employed as Chaplaincy Team Leader for the Harrogate & District NHS Foundation Trust in July 2015.

David has come to the Bishop Auckland & Shildon Circuit with his wife Diane.
