Steve was born in London, and was brought up in London, Essex and Devon.
He studied Computer Science at Portsmouth Polytechnic between 1980-1984, and at the
age of 19 he became interested in the Christian faith. After reading and thinking
very intensively he made a prayer of commitment and gave his life to Christ.
For over twenty years Steve has worked in Information Technology as a computer programmer,
systems analyst, and up to 2004 as a Project Manager.
Steve is married to Christine, and they have four grown-up children: Paul, Jennifer,
Daniel and Victoria. They also have two cats.
From 1990 to 2004 they were based in Stockport, and were involved with a church plant
which met in a local pub, local mission churches and two parish churches. As the
family grew they became more involved, playing guitar and flute together in worship.
In 1996 Steve was licensed as a Reader, and later changed direction and was accepted
for Ordained Ministry.
From 2004 to 2006 Steve was curate at St. Mary’s, Nantwich before being appointed
Vicar at All Saints’ and St. Peters in Crewe where he was for nine years.
In Crewe Steve has been Chaplain to Crewe Alexandra football club, the Sea Cadets
and Air Cadets, and the Royal Engineers Association, in addition to School Governor
for a number of local primary schools.
Steve’s main hobby is wine making – so if anyone has any spare fruit available he’s
always pleased to have it. He also loves science fiction, listening to music, playing
guitar and playing flight simulator games on the computer, because in reality – he’s
a frustrated pilot!
