Jonathan Pryke is senior minister at Jesmond Parish Church (JPC), Newcastle upon Tyne in the northeast of England, where he has been for thirty years, working with David Holloway, the vicar of Jesmond. He studied at Trinity College, Cambridge University, and Trinity Theological College in Bristol before ordination in the Church of England. He is married to Vivienne, and they have a son, twin daughters, and a one-year-old grandson. JPC has been in ‘impaired communion’ with the bishop of Newcastle for more than twenty years.
