Matt, Mary and the family have moved to Beckenham so that Matt can serve as a pastor. Matt's originally from Salisbury, but has lived in London for the majority of his life. He trained at Oak Hill Theological college and before moving to Beckenham worked as Associate Pastor for St Peter's Barge in Canary Wharf. In his spare time, Matt can be found spending time with the family or playing/watching sport (though there's more watching than playing these days!)
Adam and his wife Becky both grew up in the area. Adam has lived in, was educated in, and worked in Beckenham. In more recent times, Adam has completed the Cornhill training course and is currently studying with Crosslands Bible Training. Adam enjoys playing board games and charity shop bargains.
Stephen was born and educated in Beckenham and has always lived in the local area. He worked for the Government for 36 years, and then as part-time Operations Director for a local Church, before 'retiring' from paid employment. He is married to Stella and is now kept busy with Grandchildren (when not helping out with Church admin). Any leisure time tends to be focused on sport (watching!) and music—Stephen is a keen musician and sings in a local choir.
