Preaching Christ Crucified

The Association of Evangelists - Charity Number 266005

The affiliate evangelists are those whose primary allegiance is to another organisation (eg employed by a local church) but who value the chance to join regularly with other evangelists for prayer, fellowship, and discussion.

Pete is a Londoner, although he accidentally ended up supporting Liverpool Football Club. He loves music & playing the Drums and has an interest in almost everything.

For around 12 years Pete has also volunteered with Street Pastors. He is currently working as an Evangelist with his local church, Grove Chapel, Camberwell. He is involved with various ministries: running regular door knocking, meeting up 1-to-1 with people, leading bible studies, running an International Cafe & a monthly community lunch, training & one off events.
