Rev J Smith
This is my sixth year in the Stoke North Methodist Circuit, and I currently have pastoral oversight of Baddeley Edge, Bucknall, Milton and Werrington Methodist Churches. I have a passion for practical and Contextual Theology - helping people to see how Scriptures written thousands of years ago apply to our lives today and bring us into a closer personal relationship with Christ which then enables us to live out the gospel in a way which touches the lives of others. Prior to coming into ministry I worked in the Voluntary Sector for many years. I have 3 children and 3 grandchildren who all help to keep me grounded. In my ‘ spare’ time I enjoy travel, classical music and I am an avid fan of Australian soaps-but don’t hold that against me!
