Rev. Peter Quinnell – New Associate Priest

Our Team Rector Rev. Nick Davies writes; “I am delighted to announce that, following conversations with Bishop Rachel and an interview with the PCC, Fr. Peter Quinnell has been appointed to serve as an Associate Priest licenced to the South Cheltenham team with pastoral responsibility for St Stephen’s Tivoli.  Fr Peter will be serving on a part-time basis and will be licenced by the Bishop of Gloucester at a service at St Stephen’s on Wednesday 6th September at 7pm.  Peter trained at St Stephen’s House Oxford, served his curacy at Tewkesbury Abbey, has since served in both the Gloucester and Winchester Dioceses and recently retired from being Acting Team Rector of the Stroud Team Ministry.  He and his wife Jean have recently moved back to Cheltenham.  I’m really excited that Peter will be joining the team.  I look forward to all that he will bring and to the stability and new chapter that he will be able to offer to St Stephen’s.  Please do hold Peter and Jean in your prayers as they look forward to this new season in ministry.
