As Vicar of St Barnabas, Henry holds the overall responsibility for the leadership of the church. Having had a background in the property business, he got involved in planting and subsequently leading a church in Harrow. From there Henry moved to St Bs over fifteen years ago. Somewhere along the way he was ordained in the Church of England having studied variously at London Bible College (now London School of Theology), Oak Hill College and North Thames Ministerial Training College.
Henry is a regular speaker at New Wine and in many places around the world. His book “The Wind Blows Wherever it Pleases” has been well received and many have been hugely helped on their spiritual walk through it. He has a passion for seeing the church become an effective vehicle for transformation for both the individual and society at large, as well as having a heart for world missions. Henry is married to Jane and they have three grown up children. In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his family, walking in the country, riding his quad bike and playing real tennis
