REV Amanda Reynolds has been appointed minister by Kendal Unitarians.

Rev Reynolds, who trained as an Interfaith minister, has been a member of the Kendal congregation for nine years.

In 2016 she took on a new role as head of the Ministry team at the chapel and helped to create the collaborative and positive environment which has seen the Chapel go from strength to strength.

An induction service for the new minister will be held early in 2020 at the start of the year of celebrations for the 300th anniversary of the Chapel on Branthwaite Brow which is often known as the town's ‘Hidden Gem.’
