Richard became vicar of St John's in September 2017. He is passionate about seeing God's people grow in their faith and reach out to others with the gospel. As vicar his role is to equip all church members for the work of ministry so that we are all built up and encouraged to live for Christ in our daily lives.

He is married to Suzanne and they have a son, William. In his spare time he enjoys reading, watching rugby and murder mysteries, and gardening (weather permitting!).

Richard became a Christian at university and after working as a librarian in the NHS for a few years, studied at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford for theological training, and then served his curacy in the Parish of Heswall in the Diocese of Chester.
