John has been a Trustee of Barnabus since 2002, and he became Chairman in 2011. During his working life, John spent his working life with various government departments, retiring from H M Revenue & Customs in 2014.

His work with the Forty Three Trust as an Associate Evangelist has seen him speak at Church Leader conferences in countries like Tanzania, Uganda, India and loads more around the world. John is also a Lay Canon of Webuye Cathedral in Bungoma, Kenya. A bit closer to home, he’s also a frequent speaker and many churches in and around the Manchester area.

Outside of his great work with Barnabus, choral music is one of John’s passions. You might just spot him belting out the hymns with several choirs in the Greater Manchester area.
