The Rev Campbell Dixon MBE was introduced as Priest-in-Charge of St Mark’s Parish Church, Ballysillan, on Sunday October 9.
Campbell, who is married to Jacqui, was a member of the clergy team at St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast, for almost five years, where his work focused on pastoral ministry and on administration.
Campbell grew up in the Ballymena area and was a member of Ballyscullion Parish. He studied Personnel and Human Resource Management at the University of Ulster, and has a Master’s Degree in Human Resource Management.
He worked with the police service for 33 years before training for ordination at the Church of Ireland Theological College, and was curate in St Patrick’s, Jordanstown, for four and a half years before his appointment to St Anne’s Cathedral.
Campbell said: “St Mark’s will be a new challenge. I am looking forward to working with parishioners and to taking the parish forward in the next chapter of its history.”
