A new Team Rector for Shaftesbury Team Ministry!

The Bishop of Sherborne is delighted to announce that subject to the necessary statutory checks the Revd Donna Gibbs has been appointed as the new Team Rector of Shaftesbury.  The Team Patronage Board and Patron have all agreed the appointment.  Donna is currently Pioneer Team Vicar in North Lambeth in the Southwark diocese, prior to that she was curate in Ipswich, spending some of that time as acting Rector of four rural parishes.    Donna trained at Sarum College and comes with experience of youth ministry, and encouraging lay ministry, she has a background in the health care sector.   We believe that Donna will bring to the team management skills and energy for outreach, an eagerness to work with all-ages, particularly with the schools and much experience of community outreach.   Thanks to all those who have been involved in this appointment.  We look forward to Donna moving to Shaftesbury in February and her Institution, Induction and Installation will be on Tuesday 1st March at 7pm.
