Hi, I’m Steve, and I have been the Vicar over in the Eastside since 2014. I was born in Manchester in 1981 and moved to Swansea in 1999. I have spent the majority of my working life in finance, working for HSBC, Household Bank and Citifinancial in Swansea. After becoming a Christian, I realised I could no longer work in finance because of the ethical conflicts and I began training for ordination in Cardiff in 2009. During my training I undertook placements in
– St Aldates Church Oxford
– St Pauls, Newport
– St Pauls, Sketty
– St Barnabas, Waunarllydd
– Swansea Prison
– Morriston Hospital Chaplaincy Department
– St Peters, Cape Town, South Africa.
Following on from my ordination in 2012, I served two years in All Saints Church, Oystermouth before moving to St Thomas in 2014. I am passionately committed to serving Jesus and His church in this fantastic place and have recently completed the CPAS Arrow Leadership Programme. Part of my time is spent ministering to students as the associate Anglican chaplain at Swansea University
I am married to Rachel who works in full time ministry to families in Swansea, and I have been blessed with three amazing children, Ryan, Katy-Grace and Sam!
