Mark has a keen interest in theology and biblical interpretation which led to his studying for an MA with London School of Theology. He is passionate about teaching and preaching, in particular he has an on-going fascination with the Psalms. He tweets and blogs about the Psalms on a daily basis (see PsalterMark.com and @PsalterMark). He also claims to be writing a book on the Psalms.

His day job is being an academic at the University of Surrey where he teaches engineering materials and researches advanced manufacturing of metals and alloys. He also looks after the University’s electron microscopy unit.

He has a wide range of interests which include steam locomotives, growing Mexican cacti, board games and cinema. 

 

Alex works as a finance director for a medical trials company, which involves regular visits to Germany. He also acts as treasurer for the church.

  My wife and I moved to Guildford summer of 2016 having completed about 35 years as a Baptist Minister in London.

Before ministry I was a Met Police officer for about 15 years.

We have two sons and two grandchildren.

My chief pastime is growing fruit and veg in a Guildford allotment.
