Revd Rachel Hughes

Before accepting the call to be minister of Abingdon Baptist church, Rachel has had varied experience working as a Religious Studies Teacher, Head of Year and Head of Department for many years in an inner-city school in the East of Cardiff. More recently she has been employed by the Oxford University Hospital’s Trust as a team chaplain, working specifically with patients, staff and families in Sobell House Hospice as well as in the wider hospitals.

She is married to Andy, who is also an accredited Baptist Minister, working for a charity supporting retired ministers. They have three grown up children, as well as a gorgeous granddaughter.

In her spare time Rachel loves to spend time with her family, walk her dog and when possible, spend time by the sea.
