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. Peter is a keen supporter of the work of Open Doors and 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. He has a heart for mission, undertaking visits to Liberia, 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! Other than this Peter tries hard to keep fit and is an avid rugby fan, especially if it involves England or Gloucester winning!
