Our People

At present we are in an interregnum, our Rector having retired in June and we have started the process of finding a new incumbent for the benefice.

Our Associate Minister, who has special responsibility for Salford Priors, is Rev Sheila Bridge who lives in the Vicarage in Salford Priors.

We have two Lay Readers, Mrs Judith Meehan who lives in Bidford and Allan Steven who lives in Stratford upon Avon.

We are very fortunate to have the support of three retired clergy living in the area who are able to help taking our regular services as well as some weddings and funerals.

There is a Ministry Team at St Matthew's in Salford Priors who support Sheila Bridge with the ministry there.
