I took up the Pastorate at Broadstone Baptist Church in Poole in July 2005 having moved south from the Gloucester area where I had been employed as a Contracts Manager for an international engineering company. Converted at the age of eleven I am committed to teaching God's word and showing how it is relevant for our lives in the 21st century. My hobbies include reading, motorcycling and walking. I am married to Joanna and we have three children, Joshua, Rebekah and Edward.

Simeon Woodcraft


Simeon has been the Pastor of New Milton Evangelical Free church for eleven years. He became a Christian 25 years ago through the work of Bedford Young Life, after hearing a friends testimony he came under conviction of sin, repented and asked Jesus into his life. 

Simeon longs to see many brought to know the Lord Jesus Christ and to see them discipled to be passionate followers of Him. The work has developed in different ways over the years and it is Simeon's prayer that it will continue to grow for the glory of God. Simeon has been married to Liz for 20 years and they have 7 children.
