Revd Phil Bradley

Despite going to church regularly during my childhood it was only when I was in Hounslow aged 31 that I encountered God in a very real way and made a commitment to become a Christian. I was an IT Project Manager at that stage and whilst enjoying my job, I was constantly seeking something else - but God was seeking me, and I could not refuse Him.

Soon after, I met Debbie through good friends from my church and we married within 12 months. We had 3 boys, Thomas, Joel and Benjamin and moved to Highworth following God’s calling to move west.

I had felt a call to leadership and trained as a Licensed Lay Minister (Lay Reader), but Jesus wanted more, so I answered the call to leave my well paid IT job and enter full time leadership in the Church of England.

I trained at Trinity College in Bristol and then took a curacy role at St Anne’s Church, Oldland Common, in which my family and I have been richly blessed.

I love football, rugby, cricket (in fact all sports), guitar based music, Science Fiction & Fantasy (esp. Dr Who) and socialising.

I look forward to working with these four churches to collaboratively bring the good news of Christ’s Kingdom to the communities in which they are situated.
