Neil became the pastor of Baglan Community Church in 2003, one year after co-founding the church with his wife Hannah and two other couples. After 10 years of meeting in a community centre, the church was able to purchase its first building: an old social club.
Neil grew up in Baglan, South Wales, and was converted just before going to university to study music. He studied theology at London Theological Seminary, following a year with London City Mission on their voluntary evangelism scheme. Whilst at London he met his wife Hannah, and they now have five children.
Neil is a life long fan of Liverpool (and is now more vocal about that than ever!) and also enjoys walking the hills near his home.
