Rural Ministries role for Alison  

Baptist minister Alison Griffiths is to take up a new role with Rural Ministries

Alison GriffithsAlison will become the charity's new Pastoral Director for the South of England, beginning on 1 January 2019. It's a part-time role, enabling her to continue her leadership of Lydney Baptist Church in rural Gloucestershire where she has been minister since finishing her training at Bristol Baptist College in 2011.

Rural Ministries exists to provide support, guidance and renewed energy for churches and pioneers working in rural communities across the UK.

'Rural and marginal communities are where I've always felt most at home so being called to serve with Rural Ministries is an unexpected delight,' said Alison.

'I am looking forward to working with others who share the conviction that it is often in the most unlikely places where the love of Jesus flourishes and God is at work.'

Alison is married to lawyer Ian and they have three teenage children. Prior to being called to full-time ministry she was a solicitor and community mediator.

Simon Mattholie, Chief Executive of Rural Ministries said, 'We look forward to welcoming Alison to the team. Her gifting and insight will be an enormous help as we seek to serve a growing network of churches and mission minded individuals.'
