Meet the Team
I am the Senior Minister at UV which means I lead the Church Staff Team. I am married to Cerys, we have three grownup children and I am still in denial that I am the oldest member of staff!
Being the Director of Pastoral Care and Evangelism, I coordinate a team who deliver pastoral care among our church and community, and am also the staff member responsible for dedications, baptisms, weddings and funerals. It also means I direct our evangelism, prayer and discipleship programmes. I am a life-long Liverpool fan and love a good curry!
I’m Emily, the team lead for the Emerging Generations. I oversee all UV’s work with children, young people, families and young adults and am hugely passionate about intergenerational church. I love shoes, baking, sunshine, crafting, travelling and above all JESUS! I hate baked beans and if I could have any superpower it would be invisibility!
I'm the Executive Assistant to the Core Team - Andy, Steve and Emily. I'm married to Graham and our three grandchildren keep us busy, along with four cats and our Border Collie, Skye.
I'm the Church Office Manager and enjoy this varied role. I'm married to John, and we have three sons, who are all taller than me now! I enjoy walking by the sea and relaxing at our beach hut.
I am part of the office team and support the running of the Church Office. I have two grown-up daughters and two teenagers. Having lived in South Africa a lot of my life, there is definitely a bias in certain rugby matches!
I am the Communications Lead and I help shape how Upton Vale communicates. I'm married to Neil and we have a son. In my spare time I enjoy being with family/friends, cooking and renovating our house.
I'm the Premises Manager here at UV. I am responsible for the building upkeep and improvement; Health and Safety and room hire. I am married to Rachel and have 3 step 'kids'. I enjoy gaming, reading, and walking.
I am the Caretaker/Cleaner here at UV. I have two kids. I found my faith at UV four years ago through Alpha and have been walking with Jesus ever since. I like cycling, watching films and sitting on the beach.
