We are blessed to have a brilliant team of both licensed and lay leaders at St Barnabas, supported by an equally fantastic group of volunteers. There are more people to meet so watch this space!

"Having been ordained as Deacon in 1967 and Priest in 1968, I served in County Durham, Salisbury, Hereford, Leicester and Wales. I came to Gloucester in 2009 beginning my time at St Barnabas in 2012. I married my wife Sheila in 1967 and we have 3 sons and 4 grandchildren. My hobbies are model railway, collecting stamps and I have a large collection of railway and naval books!"

Vicar of St Barnabas & Priest-in-Charge of

St Katharine's Matson

I was born in Churchdown and considers myself a Gloucestershire girl through and through.  I am married to Ian and have four children and a small dog. Before ordination, I was a musician and then trained for ministry at the Queens Foundation for Ecumenical Theological Education. I am especially interested in exploring ways that all ages can be church together, helping others explore God’s call, liturgy and digital worship, evangelism and mission. I enjoy long walks, playing the piano, researching family and local history, coffee with friends and exploring new places and ideas!

"I am a widow, I have a wonderful son and daughter & three amazing grandchildren.I love walking on Robinswood Hill & do three exercise classes a week. I speak French & taught at St. Peter's High School for 26 years. I enjoy my Churchwarden role because of the wonderful fellowship at St.Barnabas!".

Loving wife, incredibly proud mother of two and besotted grandmother. Love my church family both near and far because God first loved me.  I enjoy gardening on our allotment, would love to get back to watercolour and pastel painting and of course love reading mostly about God who can be in unexpected places.
