Our Minister

Rev. James Taylor our minister is married to Karen, a keen amateur genealogist, and they have a son Richard (Ryo),
and daughter Eleanor (Ellie).

James was born and raised in Reading until, in 1991, his work as a research scientist took him and nhis young family
to Cambridge where his research interests concerned human health and cancer research.

He was ordained in 2010 at Christ Church in Tetbury serving churches at Tetbury, Fairford and South Cerney. And
in 2014 he was called to take pastoral charge of Ashcroft Church, whilst remaining with Fairford and South Cerney.

Coming from relatively humble origins, he is passionate in relating the love of God to all people, particularly
those in our society who do not have the best start in life. And he alson has a love of railways, particularly those
of the steam variety! In the past has built a garden railway, though currently he is working on a '00 gauge' layout.
