Our Priest

Revd Heather de Gruyther

We are pleased to announce that an appointment has been made and accepted as the new Priest in Charge of the Highnam Benefice and of the Parish of Minsterworth.

It’s the Rev’d Heather de Gruyther and the licensing will probably take place in September – on a date yet to be agreed.

Heather comes to us from the Parish of St Paul and Stephen in Gloucester, where she has been Curate since her ordination in 2019.

Heather is married to John with two children – Evie (who is 18)  and Samuel (who is 12). Heather grew up in Stroud and studied History at the University of Gloucestershire. She trained for ordination on the locally-based Cuddesdon, Gloucester and Hereford course.

You’ll be able to learn more about Heather in the June edition of the Link magazine – we have invited her to write something about herself for that edition.

So please can we pray for Heather and her family as they prepare for their move to Highnam.
