Stuart is a proud Welshman who grew up in Cardiff. He has been Associate Minister at St Johns since 2002.
In a previous life Stuart was a Tax Inspector for HMRC in Cardiff whilst being actively involved in a Brethren church in preaching, children’s and youth work. In 1984 he spent a year in Sweden studying at The Capernwray Torchbearer’s Bible School, followed by doing a Theology degree and Diploma in Pastoral Studies at London Bible College, and later completed an M.A. in Church History at Trinity College, Bristol. He pastored a Baptist church in Tredegar (South Wales), and a Congregational church in Dukinfield, before becoming part of the leadership team at St Johns.
At St Johns, Stuart oversees the small group network, and is also involved in preaching, teaching, pastoral care, and leadership training. He is married to Sue, and they have 3 grown up children, and a faithful cocker spaniel. Outside of church, Stuart likes playing squash, watching football, cricket, and rugby (especially Wales!), walking with his wife and the dog, and still retains a sad interest in trains and model railways.
