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 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!
