Since being called to the pastoral ministry in 1982, Paul has served as pastor in three churches – in Chippenham, Worcester and Bath. For three years he was the President of the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches. He has been involved in a variety ministerial training schemes. He has also been engaged in pastoring pastors.
Paul is married to Edrie and they have four children and five grandchildren. For the last twenty years Paul and Edrie have had to live with Edrie’s serious neurological degenerative disease. This has shaped their ministry and it has proved God’s faithfulness.
Paul is currently the pastor of Widcombe Baptist Church in Bath. His church releases him regularly so that he can serve a number of conferences throughout the UK and beyond. He has written two books. “Invest Your Suffering” seeks to bring biblical encouragement out of their experience of chronic illness. “Staying Fresh” addresses the important subject of maintaining spiritual vitality in a busy and demanding world.
Paul loves reading military history and he is a life–time supporter of West Bromwich Albion.
