What a fabulous Easter! We had some great events like the concert, the Great Cross Bun Hunt, the Passover Meal... Come Easter Sunday morning, St Matthew's was rammed! And what an atmosphere! It was a really joyful encounter with the risen Lord. Thank you everyone who made it possible and everyone who took part. You are wonderful!
I have been a vicar since 1988. I love my job, especially when I see people's relationship with God come alive as they go deeper with Jesus. To be a forgiven person and a beloved child of God, to have a great hope for the future and to find meaning for our lives now – that is what inspires me about the Christian faith. I want to prioritise meaningful worship, prayer, the healing ministry, loving one another and growing the church.
I am married to Elisa, who is a nurse, and we have four great kids - Saara, Tim, Tom and Ben, all grown up now. Saara is married and has produced two wonderful children – we are loving being grandparents! Tim and Tom live at home with us and Ben is currently planning to be a missionary, together with his lovely new wife Kathryn.
I arrived in Horton and Wraysbury in summer 2013 and have been made very welcome – thank you everyone for your kindness!
