Charismatic, Reformed (happy to be labelled a New Calvinist) and PostGay, married to Gayle, Peter became a Christian in 1994 and since then has worshipped in a variety of contexts, beginning in house churches (Vineyard and New Frontiers) before settling in the Church of England. He attended Vicar Factory in Oxford at Wycliffe Hall.
Peter has been speaking and writing on issues of sexuality and identity for a number of years and in diverse places (from Spring Harvest to the Pink Paper, radio stations in the UK and abroad as diverse as Premier Radio and Voice of Russia and on the BBC). He works with groups like Living Waters UK and TFT to bring the message of restoration and wholeness for all of God’s people. His relationship with Jesus is not just with a God who has saved him but who is also at work in his world, bringing the healing and wholeness that can only come from Christ.
When he’s not watching his complete collection of Doctor Who videos and DVDs he enjoys being one of only 7 people in Britain able to sing Bronski Beat’s “Smalltown Boy” at the correct pitch. Supermode eat your heart out.
He and Gayle have had three sons, Reuben Johannes Hugh who was born in May 2008, Zachary Andreas who had Edwards Syndrome and was stillborn in September 2009 and Jonah Martin James, born December 2010.
