Welcome Revd. Rachel

Today, after nearly a year without a Rector and Team Vicar of The Priory Church of St Peter, the congregation broke out in spontaneous, delighted applause when Hilary, our Church Warden, read out the following letter from the Bishop of Bedford.

I am delighted that we are now in a position to confirm that the Reverend Rachel Phillips is to be the new Team Rector of the Dunstable Team Ministry with responsibility for Priory Church of St Peter’s.
Rachel is currently a Residentiary Canon at Rochester Cathedral, with particular responsibility for mission and growth. She trained for the ministry at St John’s College, Nottingham and was ordained in the Diocese of London in 2007. Prior to ordination she worked as a solicitor and also a church organist and choir director. She will be returning to the Diocese of St Albans, having been incumbent of Northaw & Cuffley from 2010 to 2016 and also rural dean of Cheshunt.
Rachel will be licensed as your Team Rector and Vicar of the Priory Church at 7.30pm on Thursday 31 October.
