We are people who love Jesus and want to make him known in Oxford. About half of us are in full time education but beyond that we are from all backgrounds and all stages of life. We represent many countries but we are united by the gospel.
I am passionate about seeing people transformed by God's Spirit as they come to know Christ, and discover the great truths about God's eternal grace. I am determined to do everything I can to enable Trinity Church to be a place where that happens.
I considered myself Christian from my early teens but stopped going to church when I got my first job and for perhaps 20 years lived a self focussed life with occasional gestures to good works. When my eldest son was about 11 he asked why I dropped him at sunday school and went home - having stayed and sat under faithful Bible teaching I finally came to a true faith some 15 years ago, as did my wife Kathy and all three of our children. I work in London and worship there mid week as well as being involved in Trinity as Treasurer, Elder & member.
I became a Christian in my early teens and was blessed by two godly parents. When Mary and I arrived as a newly married couple in Oxfordshire, I spent a decade and more serving as a deacon and teaching secondary school age children at Abbey Baptist Church in Abingdon. For the last 10 years we have been involved at Magdalen Road Church Oxford teaching teenagers and more recently in the group setting up Trinity. My work as an agronomist has taken me around the countryside in the counties surrounding Oxford and has given me opportunities to share my faith with members of the farming community. I have two children Toby 27 and Naomi 24. I am the delighted grandfather of Benjamin, four months.
