Some people at Avening Church
Licensed Lay Minister (Reader) - Derrick Pierce
Having served as a member of the Parochial Church Council and Church Warden
of St. Mary's Church, Kingswood for a number of years, and following three years
training at the Gloucester School of Ministry (WEMTC), Derrick was licensed as
the Lay Reader in that Benefice in 1995. When Derrick and his wife moved to
Somerset to take over a Post Office and General Store his licence was transferred
to The Bath and Wells Diocese.
In 2004, Derrick and his wife moved to Avening, and we at Holy Cross Church,
We are very fortunate that Derrick agreed to transfer his licence back to the
Gloucester Diocese, where he now serves the Avening and Cherington Benefice.
