Vicar (and Area Dean) - Reverend David MacGeoch
The Reverend David MacGeoch was instituted as our vicar in September 2008, also to look after the parishes of St Benedict in Glastonbury and St Mary in Meare. He and his family previously served in Puriton, near Bridgwater. He knew Glastonbury well already: he was a social worker in the town for several years before he was ordained as priest.
(The title Area Dean recently replaced the antiquated term Rural Dean in the Bath and Wells diocese.)
