Doug Rice-Bowen

Doug will serve in the parish of Holy Trinity, Skipton, and St Augustine’s, Draughton. He began his Christian journey at his family church, St Margaret’s, Great Barr and went from there to become a chorister at Ely Cathedral. He originally studied at Cardiff University for a Bachelor of Divinity but continued his career in music as a professional opera singer. More recently he taught Religious Education in schools in London and Yorkshire. He continued his singing as a choral lay vicar at St Paul’s cathedral and with the choir at Bradford cathedral.
Doug is married to Jane and has twins who keep him on his toes. When he is not working you will probably find him following his other passions of cricket, rugby and Brighton and Hove Albion. Doug and the family moved up to Yorkshire around 5 years ago back to Jane’s roots.
