Alex is our full time Ministry Apprentice. He’s currently finishing off a Theology degree through the university of Cumbria. Currently he’s busy preparing for his wedding to his fiancée Rachael. He’s sure to make you feel welcomed here but don’t stand too close or you might hear his ‘delightful’ singing.
