Stuart Hodges was a tall, friendly man who took over as lay preacher at the Glad Tidings Mission Hall from Leonard Swindley in April 1964. His arrival coincided with a decline in turnouts at services at the Mission, causing assistant Emily Nugent to worry that Stuart would recommend its closure, but he immediately allayed her fears with his desire to brighten up the Mission. His amiable manner gave him a talent for putting people at ease; he even won over resident caretaker Ena Sharples by helping her wash the Mission walls.
Soon after his arrival, Stuart helped pensioner Minnie Caldwell when she fell through the bannisters at the Viaduct Sporting Club. Stuart arranged a holiday for Minnie at the seaside and found a solicitor for her to file a claim against Len Fairclough, who did the construction work at the club.
Swindley returned to Weatherfield in May after hearing about Martha Longhurst's death. Swindley and Hodges conducted the funeral together. Hodges later was to conduct Swindley and Emily Nugent's wedding service, but the service was cancelled when Emily didn't show up.
