The Reverend Peter Cowley, CA, is a priest and a captain in the Church Army, a religious order dedicated to evangelism worldwide within the Anglican Communion. He is a fan of Prescot Cables and Liverpool, and his love of football has provided many a sermon illustration over the years.

The Reverend Jeff Engel is a retired priest, formerly the Vicar of Hale, and he regularly assists the other clergy in Prescot. We enjoy giving him a friendly wave as he whooshes down the church aisles and through Prescot on his scooter.
