KEIGHLEY team rector, the Rev Mike Cansdale, has been installed as an honorary canon of Bradford Cathedral.

A special installation service was led by Bishop Paul Slater, who himself is no stranger to Keighley – he is a former curate at the Shared Church.

"We have invited Mike to this role to honour all that he is doing in forming a new team for the parish and the exciting work that is growing in the different churches across the town," said Bishop Paul.

Mike's role will see him act as an ambassador for the cathedral in the district, and contribute to Church strategy.

"It's a privilege to serve the cathedral and diocese in this way and to make sure Keighley has a voice in the region," he said.
