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 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.
I am the proud husband of Zoe and father to two delightful twins. Having studied at Oxford and enjoyed worshipping at Trinity it is now a privilege to be involved in the leadership. I am currently a Religious Studies teacher at St Edward’s School in Oxford.

I gave my life to Jesus when I was 19 after several years of searching for the truth. After university in sunny Aberystwyth, and working as a student worker in Wales and Slovakia for a couple of years, I now live in Oxford with my wife Becca. I work in publishing, but spend time outside work walking and cycling. I love being a part of Trinity and seeing Jesus change the lives of those who love and follow him.

It’s been great to be part of Trinity Church while I’ve been working towards my DPhil here at Oxford. Although I was brought up in a Christian family, as a child I thought there were more interesting ways to spend time than doing Christian things. Since over 16 years ago though I’ve been thrilled with what the Bible describes as, “…new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead”. I enjoy running, cycling, reading, coffee and (after starting at Trinity) looking after AV equipment!

I was blessed to grow up in a Christian home in Cambridge (which is a remarkably pretty town). Mum and Dad taught me the gospel from a young age and I whilst I have never known a day when I haven’t believed in Jesus, aged 13 I came to see the saving power of his death on the cross for me. My better half Emma and I met whilst running a Christian Union together at our first school. Ever since then we have been inseparable, working together in Newcastle, and most recently at an international boarding school in Kenya, where we were blessed to be Houseparents to 36 excitable and charming 6-11 year olds. We have enjoyed the past year living and working in Oxford and enjoy being part of the Trinity family.
