I am pastor of a recent church plant in Somerset UK, The Seed Christian Fellowship started officially on the first Sunday in July 2016. We are currently meeting in the annexe of Glendale House, Cheddar (our “potting shed”), and are in the process of searching for a larger venue to accommodate us.

You can read more about The Seed on our website www.theseeduk.church

I also serve in various other capacities:

Firstly, I help the mission organisation Christ for India as UK Development Director. My primary role is to try to raise the profile of CFI in the UK, to visit churches and small groups and talk about the mission in India. I also travel to India annually and lecture in the Seminary there and can organise and lead small mission teams as necessary. If you would like a visit from me to hear about the work, or indeed, to join a mission team, please contact me on julian@christforindia.org or use the contact form below.

Secondly, I am on the development team of Moorlands College, the Bible College I studied at myself when preparing for Christian Ministry. My role is to try to promote their new placement-based degree in Missional Leadership. If you or someone you know are feeling called to some form of Christian leadership, this degree course is an excellent way of preparing while still working in the context of your local church. Do contact me and I’d love to meet with you to chat about it.

Thirdly, I am a private guitar teacher. After many years of teaching guitar to young people in the churches I have pastored, and teaching a worship and guitar course to the Students on campus in India (see Christ for India above), I have been persuaded to offer private lessons. If you live locally to Weston-super-Mare, I can offer beginner’s lessons at very competitive prices. I can offer a lesson which provides a guitar during the lesson so you can take a trial lesson to see if you like it BEFORE splashing out cash on a new guitar!
