Vicar – Rev. David Price

David has been the Vicar of St John’s since 2012.


David was brought up in England, Australia and Venezuela and became a Christian in the sixth form after reading the New Testament.

Children and Families Worker – Ms. Bex Simpkins

Bex Simpkins has been the Children and Families worker for St. Johns since 2014

Bex was brought up in the rural depths of North Wiltshire in both a Christian and farming family. She became a Christian when she was 17 at Spring Harvest.

Studying childcare she became a full time nursery nurse but Bex found herself doing increasing amounts of volunteer work within the church. She discovered an increasing passion to want to do more to share the love of God with children.

After A year’s Children's Ministry course with CYM and lots of prayer the post of Children and Families worker at St John's seemed a great way to pursue this desire further.

She truly feels St John's is where God wants her to be, loving the fact that she is able to go into schools, nurseries and support clubs where seeds of the knowledge of God’s love are being sown. Outside of work she enjoys                                                                               both playing and listening to music, shopping, and a good piece of cake.
