About Us


From: The Revd Marian Taylor

If you are exploring this website I am going to assume you are interested in what is going on at Wheatley Lane Methodist Church and more importantly are interested in finding out about God who loves us all and longs to be in relationship with you.

My name is Revd Marian Taylor and I am a Methodist minister in the Burnley and Pendle Circuit based at Wheatley Lane Methodist Church and Wheatley Lane Methodist VA Primary School. My ministry is about being on a journey with people to discover more about how God loves you and me unconditionally.

Here are some details about me. I have lived in Fence with my husband Revd Philip Taylor, who is the Methodist Superintendent minister in the circuit, since August this year. We are both looking forward to our ministry in this area which is new to us both although Phil was born in South Lancashire.

I grew up in a coal mining community in County Durham but have lived most of my life in the Midlands with three years in Surrey after university. My heart belongs in Scotland and especially the north west coast, the many islands and particularly the island of Iona.  So Scotland is where we spend most of our holidays.

Our son lives with his partner in Northampton. He has become one of our best friends. We discuss life, the universe and everything during many phone calls and occasional visits.

I canít remember a time when I did not have a relationship with God and over the years I have experienced how much God loves me and you. You will find me leading worship in church and other events because I know that I need to also be in relationship with other people who are discovering how being in relationship with God transforms their lives.

I very much enjoy meeting people and making new relationships so I will be very happy if you choose to make contact for a chat, to ask for prayer or a listening ear.

So please feel free to be in contact with me either by
telephone (01282 613165),
email (
come to church or talk to me if you see me wandering around the area or at the school.


With Godís blessings,
