After growing up in the West Country, Gareth has served in ministry roles in Mansfield, Gloucester, Burnley and Derby before joining the staff team at PMCH in September 2018. He is married to Laura and dad to Joseph, Naomi and Beth. He is passionate about seeing the local church energised and impacting people’s lives.
