Following Jesus

Sharing His Love


Keith began as Priest-in-Charge (Rector Designate) of the Ledbury and Eastnor Group of churches in October 2015, becoming rector when the parish reorganisation was formally completed in 2017.
He is a lover and accidental collector of all kinds of eccentric bits of information. He delights in communicating the best message there is, the gospel of Christ, in a variety of ways, using methods and technology - old and new - to all kinds and ages of people, confident in the truth of 2 Timothy 3:16-17. He is keen to see people become disciples of Jesus and to grow in their faith. Keith moved from Cricklewood with his wife Wendy. They met and married in Worcester, they have two adult children. Before ordination Keith worked in distribution and logistics, utilities and IT.  They both enjoy Ledbury and the surrounding countryside.  
Please pray for the parish and all who play their part in the benefice. Email Keith
