I have served as the Rector (minister) of Holy Trinity since September 2019. I am married to Lisa and we have two children, Elizabeth and Alexander.
I was born and raised in Nottingham and had been a weekly church-goer since I was born. However, it was only in my 20s, when a friend offered to read the Bible with me, that I discovered the wonder of who Jesus is and why he came. As a consequence, I am passionate about teaching the Bible clearly and faithfully in a way that encourages and equips people from all walks of life and all ages to know Jesus, grow as disciples of Jesus and go and make followers of Jesus.
I trained for ministry at Oak Hill College, North London and have previously been on the ministry teams at St Nicholas Church, Tooting and St Lawrence Church, Morden.
As part of my service here in Theale I also serve as a school governor at Theale C of E Primay School, a Chaplain to the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue service in Theale, and am a trustee of local charity, Dr Ellington's Charity. I am also on the Church Society Council, the leadership of Oxford Diocese Evangelical Fellowship and I help in the appoinment process of clergy by serving on the Board of Patronage for Oxford Diocese.
