Minister – Chris Spark

I am delighted to be part of St Peter’s of the Rock and living in North Canterbury again. My wife Sarah and I both grew up here, and it is good to be back!

Sarah and I have four children. As well as my family, I am passionate about music (especially drums), the history of New Testament times, and I love good food. Above all I love Jesus Christ and helping people get to know him. I’d love to chat to you!
