Steve has been Moderator of the West Midlands Synod since September 2015, having previously served in local churches in Lincolnshire and Enfield. His training for ministry was at Westminster College, Cambridge and was ordained in 1998. He has professional interests in church leadership and seeing churches grow - numerically and in their relationship with Jesus. Prior to ministry, Steve worked in IT and retains that as an interest and hobby now. He also enjoys photography, reading novels (especially thrillers and crime mysteries) and is currently building a OO model railway layout (which, for anyone interested, is re-creating the Waveney Valley line in Bungay, Steve' home town.) Steve is married to Linda and two of their children are still young enough to live at home.
