Samantha Jayne Rushton (born 1965) is a British Anglican priest.[1]

Early life and education

Rushton was born in 1965.[1] She studied Pure and Applied Biology at St Hilda's College, Oxford, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in 1987.[1][2] She then worked in banking, and her final job before leaving for theological college was with Lloyds TSB.[1] Having left her first career, she matriculated into Trinity College, Bristol, an Evangelical Anglican theological college.[2] She completed her training and graduated with a BA degree in theology in 2005.[2][3]

Ordained ministry

Rushton was ordained in the Church of England as a deacon in 2005 and as a priest in 2006.[3] From 2005 to 2008, she served her curacy at St Michael and All Angels, Highworth and St Leonard's Church, Broad Blunsdon in the Diocese of Bristol.[1] Then, from 2008 to 2015, she combined a diocesan appointment with parish ministry: she was Adviser for Licensed Ministry in the Diocese of Bristol, and a curate in the parish of St Paul, Chippenham with Hardenhuish and Langley Burrell, and at St Michael's Church, Kington St Michael.[3] She was also Warden of Readers from 2011 to 2015, and Area Dean of Chippenham from 2013 to 2015.[1]

In March 2015, it was announced that Rushton would be the next Archdeacon of Cleveland in the Diocese of York.[2] On 6 May 2015, she was collated and licensed as archdeacon during a service at St Peter and St Paul's Church, Pickering.[2]

In October 2019, Rushton transferred to a new role as Archdeacon of York. She was formally welcomed on 19 October at a public service in Selby Abbey led by the Bishop of Selby, the Right Reverend Dr John Thomson.[4]

Personal life

Rushton is married to Peter Rushton.[1] Together, they have two sons; Matthew and Adam.[2]
