Pete  |  Vicar

I am passionate about people coming to know and follow Jesus Christ, and how that transforms our lives. I am married to Cath with four grown up children and two small grandchildren. To me, being a disciple of Jesus Christ should be the most exciting and meaningful thing in life and I would always seek to make known the relevancy of the Christian faith.
I am an unashamed Liverpool fan and find great joy in logging!!
