Rev. Gary Benfold

Senior Pastor

Gary BenfoldGary has been minister at Moordown since 1997 after spending seventeen years pastoring a church in Buckinghamshire. He has a passion for explaining the Bible and its relevance to believers and unbelievers alike and tries to do so in a clear and jargon-free manner. He says ‘I know that Jesus Christ is Lord of the universe and answers the deepest needs of people’s hearts and souls. We all need forgiveness, acceptance and certainty; only Jesus truly gives those things.’


If you want to know more about us and what we believe as a church, or if you want to find out about church membership here, you’ll find it helpful to have a chat to one of the elders.
