Peter is originally from the delightful town of Shrewsbury, Shropshire. After a number of years working in retail banking, Peter trained for the Baptist ministry. In 2002 he became Pastor in the busy, town centre Baptist church at Warwick enjoying the demands of an all-age fellowship. In March 2018 he took over as Senior Pastor at Nailsea Baptist Church, North Somerset.

One of the major aims of his preaching is to help and encourage Christians to apply good, biblical principles to the everyday situations of 21st-century working life. Peter has a heart for the persecuted church and is an Ambassador for Open Doors, undertaking visits to Jordan, Malawi and Iraq in recent years.

Peter is married to Sue, a paediatric Speech Therapist and they delight in two grown-up daughters, Ruth and Grace who is married to Tom. Peter and Sue enjoy being outdoors, especially anything that involves mountains and hill walking and of course skiing! They have also recently taken up croquet. Other than this Peter tries hard to keep fit and is an avid rugby fan.
