My name is Rachel Leather and I joined the circuit in September 2019 and have responsibility for Bishops Cleeve and St Mark's, Cheltenham. This is my first appointment, having spent the last two years training at theological college in Birmingham. Prior to entering ministry I spent most of my career working for the Citizens Advice Bureau in volunteer management. I am married to David, who is a Research Fellow in physics at Aston University. We have two sons who have both now left school, and we have a very greedy retriever named Talisker. In my spare time I enjoy yoga, walking the dog, and binge watching boxsets.
