Training Director 

Co-ordinating our training for churches is: Andy Robinson 


Andy has been one of the pastors of Woodstock Road Baptist Church in Oxford since 2003. Surprisingly, he enjoys talking personally about issues of sexuality – being able to say that God's grace is sufficient in our weakness. He describes himself as a northerner in exile and still insists that there is no 'r' in the pronunciation of bath.





Writing and speaking for us: Andrew Bunt  


Andrew is an assistant pastor at King's Church Hastings and Bexhill and is the author of Who In Heaven's Name Do You Think You Are?: Exploring Your Identity In Christ (Charis Books) and People Not Pronouns: Reflections on Transgender Experience (Grove Books).
