Peter Burns | Pastor

Peter is married to Sue & currently serves as our Senior Pastor. After a career in retail banking, Peter studied at Bristol Baptist College before taking on the pastorate of Castle Hill Baptist Church in Warwick.

He and Sue moved to Nailsea in 2018 and really enjoy being part of the family here. They have two daughters; Ruth and Grace, who is married to Tom. Outside of church life Peter is a rugby fan and keen walker and skier.



Heulwen Evans | Youth Worker

Originally from North Wales, Heulwen moved to Nailsea in late 2018 after completing her degree in Youth Work, Communities & Practical Theology with MCYM. Her faith has helped her navigate storms in her life, and is the driving force behind her work with our young people.

When she’s not with her church family, you’ll find her watching the sunset by the sea or catching up on her favourite shows with a nice cup of tea.
