In April 2018 Heathcote Parish Church was born. As part of the Church of England we invite people from all Christian traditions, or none, to worship with us. Heathcote Parish Church grew out of Warwick Gates Community Church and we maintain a desire to be a blessing to the growing community of Warwick Gates and Heathcote.
We believe in a God who loves us and wants us to know him, who showed his love towards us in his son, Jesus Christ, and who is living and active in the world today by his Holy Spirit.
We believe that God has the power to transform individual lives, families and communities and that only by knowing him can we understand our purpose in life and live it to the full.
While we're not 'there' yet, we are on a journey together encouraging and helping one another to know God better by reading His word in the Bible and seeking to live it out with the help of his Holy Spirit.
I am married to Rachel and we have three children. I grew up in Birmingham but have lived in Nottingham, London, New Zealand, Leamington Spa, Bristol and Coventry.
I was a youth worker and then a secondary school teacher before being ordained.
A good day for me would involve some of the following:
rugby, cricket, laughing with the family, good quality coffee, Guinness, steak and an absorbing book on the kindle. A great day would involve them all!
I am passionate about helping others to experience the liberating life and love of Jesus Christ.
