What do you do here?

I am a director at Eastgate with particular responsibility for welcome and integration, stewarding and hosts and our Sunday evening meetings. The rest of the time, I work as a solicitor for an international law firm in London.

Eastgate story

Emily and I joined Eastgate in June 2011 on our return from Bethel where we had studied for 2 years. Moving to Eastgate after Bethel has proved to be a great decision. We were particularly attracted by the culture of freedom that exists here. We were also looking for a family, a church that loves God’s presence and a place where we would be encouraged to pursue all that God had been showing us and, I am thrilled to say, we have found it!

What’s your passion?

My desire is to be able to demonstrate God to people; not just tell them about Him. I want people to enjoy intimacy with God, encounter His love and power and know that they are incredibly valuable to Him.

What do you love?

I love my family, sport, good food, mountains and fine wine.

One interesting fact about you
