The St John's Crawley team are a diverse bunch from all over, with core team members joining the plant from St Peter's Brighton. We'd love to hear from you if you'd like to join us.
Steve & Liz Burston
Steve and Liz both met while working in London and have been married for 20 years. Through their marriage and journey together, they have experienced the amazing love and grace of God and are passionate that St John’s would be a place where this same love and grace would be experienced. In September 2017 they began with their three daughters Grace, Alice and Lily the new exciting adventure of leading St John’s Crawley.
Jimmy is married to the wonderful Debs and has spent the past few years serving as Curate in Horsham. Prior to being trained for ordination, he spent a number of years involved in church-based youth work in Hertfordshire and Surrey, despite being based in the south-east for a while he is a proud Welshman, with a passion for football, music, good coffee and Jesus.
Martin is our curate at St John’s Crawley, having trained at St Mellitus College, London. He is passionate about sharing the love of Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit and oversees Alpha. Martin previously spent a career in Sussex Police working in partnership with churches, charities and local authorities to help the most vulnerable in society. Married to Nicky with two teenage daughters, Martin is a keen mountaineer and assistant scout leader and enjoys running, swimming and spending time with friends.
Pete moved to Brighton four years ago to study music and got involved with St. Peter’s Brighton straight away. During his time there he has grown in faith and developed his passion for seeing God work through creativity. He is excited about seeing God’s transforming power as people encounter Him in their expressions of faith.
