My name is Rachel Leather and I am the minister at Bishops Cleeve Methodist Church. Prior to entering the ministry, I worked for the Citizens Advice Bureau, training volunteers in legal advice and representing clients at welfare benefits tribunals. I believe God calls each of us to work for justice, to challenge inequality and resist hierarchies, for we are all precious and made in God’s image.

I am married to David, a research scientist,  and we have two sons, Gabriel and Jared, and a dog named Talisker.

I am interested in having conversations of faith exploration as we journey together in the community of Bishops Cleeve, so do get in touch.
