Reverend Canon Lameck Mutete

Lameck Mutete was born in Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, during the early sixties. His place of birth is about twelve miles away from Rusape in a small loving rural community called Hera.

He is the third of nine children. Lameck is married to Perpetua.
As a young boy, it was always his desire to become a teacher but instead became a police officer. It was in the course of time that the sense of calling became apparent and, in 1994, Lameck went for ordination training. In 1996, he was made deacon and the following year, he was ordained priest in Harare St Mary's Cathedral. After ordination, he continued to serve as a Police Chaplain while at the same time helping as a non-Stipendiary clergy in Church. In 1997 he served at St Luke's Greendale in Harare and in 1999 he was acting Dean of the Cathedral before moving to St Paul's Highfields as Rector in 2001.

In 2003, Father Lameck left Zimbabwe for the United Kingdom, and in December 2004 was appointed the first African Rector of St Alban's, Tattenhall and All Saints, Handley in the Diocese of Chester. He brought with him a wealth of experience in both rural and urban ministry and pastoral care in all states of life. 


It will be a joy to see you become part of our ever growing and vibrant church. Father Lameck will be very much willing to take you through all the necessary sacramental steps and you will never regret becoming part of our spiritual home. The parishioners of St. Alban's, Tattenhall extend a warm welcome to all visitors at our worship services.
