The Revd Pete Gunstone, Assistant Curate at Fountains Church Bradford BMO, has been appointed as Interim Precentor at Bradford Cathedral to take effect from 19th September 2022. This interim appointment will run alongside Pete’s current role at Fountains Church.
Revd Pete says:
“Having sung as a volunteer Bass Lay Clerk in the cathedral choir on weekdays for the past three years, I am excited to be taking on the role of part-time Interim Precentor from September 19th alongside continuing as part-time Assistant Curate at Fountains Church Bradford.
“I am especially looking forward to getting to know the cathedral community, to ministering with you all to this unique city, and to providing opportunities for our musicians to explore and deepen faith in Jesus Christ.
“My background is musical. I’ve worked as a freelance classical and church musician in a variety of places. I’m somewhat unusual in that I am at home as a musician with both choral and contemporary styles of worship. The highlight of my musical ministry to date was directing music at the Lambeth Conference 2022, a rich inter-cultural space in which we explored the diversity of musical worship across the Anglican Communion.
“I’m married to Kirsten, we have a dog, are enjoying getting to know Bradford, and are often found walking in Scotland. Please do come and say hello!”
