OUR EVENING SPEAKER - 6th -10th July 2020 

Terry Virgo 

Internationally know expositional Bible teacher
Terry Virgo (DOB 20/2/1940) was born and raised in Brighton, on the South Coast. Though not brought up in a believing home, he was however sent to Sunday school at both a high Anglican church, and a low Presbyterian Church, where he felt he never heard the gospel message.
At sixteen Terry was converted through his sister who had become a believer.  At first he went to a formal Anglican Church, but when he visited Holland Road Baptist Church, he recalls "the moment I went through the door, I realised that these people had got what I had."

The pastor, EG Rudman, a supporter of the Keswick Convention, exercised a great influence on Virgo at a formative stage.

Terry is a prominent leader in the British New Church Movement and founder of the Newfrontiers family of evangelical churches, which has grown into an international apostolic network of over 1500 churches in more than 70 nations.

In January 2011 Terry handed over leadership of Newfrontiers to a score of leaders worldwide, each of whom is described as being "free to develop his own strategies, training programs, and gospel advance”.

He is the respected author of many successful books and a sought after speaker. He has five grown up children and twelve grandchildren.

OUR MORNING SPEAKER 8th-10th July 2020 

Dr Chris Sinkinson

Lecturer in Biblical & Theological Studies at Moorlands College



Chris originally studied Philosophy and English before going on to complete an MA and PhD in Theology. His PhD was on Christian responses to the World Religions and, the theology of John Harwood Hick who was a renowned British born philosopher of religion and theologian.

Chris also has a great interest in archaeology and the Bible. He has been involved in the Bethsaida Excavations Project in the Galilee and published in this area. His interest in apologetics motivates much of his study in areas related to the historicity of the Bible and contemporary culture.

Having been the senior pastor of Alderholt Chapel in Dorset for over ten years, Chris now lectures for BA and MA students at Moorlands College at Christchurch, Dorset, in Old Testament Studies and Apologetics and regularly leads student tours to Israel as a sort of modern day “Indiana Jones”.

Chris’ presentations include fascinating recollections of some exciting excavations he’s been a part of, along with why the Bible is so important to Him. He writes a monthly column for Evangelicals Now and has authored a number of books relevant to biblical archaeology and defending the faith and answering criticism. His current research interests are in the archaeology of the Galilee on which he continues to write and be involved in fieldwork.

Chris is married to Ros, herself a Youth and Community worker in a local church. Together they have two children and a West Highland Terrier. Chris speaks at both local churches and national events.
