Peter was born a few miles away in Beckenham. He grew up in the north-west of England before returning to South London. Peter was introduced to the gospel of Jesus Christ by a member of Lansdowne in 1989 and started coming to the church soon after. He was called by the church to be an elder in 1997, then, in 2003, he was called to be pastor. Peter is married to Margaret and they have two children.
