Rev Michelle Ireland



Hello, I am Michelle Ireland and I am delighted to be serving the Churches in Aylburton, Clements End, Coalway, Lydney and Woolaston in the Forest of Dean.

I love the countryside, having been brought up in Okehampton, Devon. I first trained to be a primary school teacher and worked in Newton Abbot for twelve years, I was then a Church worker in Teignmouth for three years.

More recently, for the last ten years, I have served a number of Churches in the rural section of the North East Somerset and Bath Circuit.

I now look forward to joining in God’s mission, sharing the love of Jesus here in Aylburton.
