Originally from Belfast, Gareth has served the local church as a Bible teacher, evangelist and youth minister in London, Oxford and Newtownabbey (Northern Ireland). As a speaker with the Solas (Centre for Public Christianity) he is passionate about engaging people’s intellectual, experiential and moral objections to Christianity, as well as demonstrating how the bible addresses some of the most pressing questions of contemporary Western culture.

He is currently reading for a doctorate in Practical Ethics at the University of Oxford, and holds degrees in theology from both Queen’s University Belfast (BD) and Oxford (MTh), as well as an MSc in Bioethics from King’s College London.
