the Late Revd John Salisbury retired as Vicar of Tosside
in 1979, the Parish was linked to Long Preston under one
vicar living there.
A further reorganisation took place in 1997 when the Revd
Mark Russell-Smith in Slaidburn reduced his role with
Bradford Diocese and Long Preston with Tosside were joined
to Slaidburn. He is now helped by Revd. Rachel Wilson,
a part-time curate, who lives in Long Preston.
Though a small parish, Tosside still has a vital role.
