I started my adventure here as Minister back in September 2007 having spent four years as a curate in an inner-city Anglican church in Bradford. Prior to that I used to work in international development.
I’m married to Jo, who originally trained and worked in London as a textile designer, then became full-time mum to our three, now grown up children and now works in children’s social care.
As a family we’ve lived in Zimbabwe, Uganda and Tanzania. Life has been wonderfully varied! I became a Christian in Zimbabwe when I was 19 and have been involved in a variety of churches over the years from house churches and Anglican cell churches in the UK, to the Anglican Cathedral in Kampala and the International Baptist Church in Dar es Salaam.
I studied Anthropology and Development Studies at Swansea and Sussex universities and theology at Wycliffe Hall, University of Oxford. I used to love long distance running and tennis but arthritis has got the better of my hips so now I mainly road bike and swim. I also have a great love for the outdoors.

Ann BakerChildren and Families Pastor
I joined Trinity in 2006 as a part-time Pastoral Worker after many years working in Special Educational Needs.
After being ordained as an elder within the URC, I studied Contextual Theology at Bangor University specialising in pastoral care.
When I joined Trinity I thought I was moving away from working with children but God had other plans and my role soon developed to encompass Children and Family Ministry. This means I can be delivering Nursery Service or Messy Church one day and taking communion to the elderly or housebound the next. Challenging at times but always immensely rewarding, and very often great fun!
I’m passionate about intergenerational activities and truly believe that God has a role for us all.
Siew Yin Chan 陳紹艷傳道HongKongers Ministry Pastor
We are so sad that Siew Yin has passed away. We will leave her photo and information here for the time being.
I’m from multi-cultural Singapore, and I went to Hong Kong as a young professional in 1993 where I worked as an external and internal auditor, and my work brought me to many countries around the world.
I did my theological training at Morling College in Sydney, and truly enjoyed the great outdoors while in Australia. Upon graduation, I had the privilege to set up an English Ministry within a mega Chinese church in Hong Kong. And in early 2019, God opened the doors and brought me to the UK to serve in a Chinese church in Reading.
With the huge migration of HongKongers to Reading recently, God moves me to partner Trinity Church and focus on serving them, and thus the HongKongers Ministry was started on 17th April 2022. It’s exciting to see how God will use the Hong Kong brothers and sisters to bless the local community here as they have been greatly blessed by the church.
I enjoy gardening and doing some novice oil painting when there’s time. And one of my favourite Bible verses is 2 Timothy 4:2a: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season.
Petrus Wong 王華山傳道HongKongers Ministry PastorAfter serving 12 years as a Minister in Hong Kong, I am so thankful to serve the Cantonese speaking congregation in Trinity. May God use us to bless all newly arrived Hong Kong people.感恩在過去12年能蒙召成為傳道人，與香港經歷過一段風雨飄遙的日子。感謝神開路讓香港人能在雷丁定居，並能一同用廣東話崇拜。願三一教會成為移英港人蒙神賜福、守望相助的地方。
