Brian and Shirley live in Edinburgh, Scotland. They have two grown up daughters, three grand children and three great-grand children.
Brian and Shirley moved from the south of England to Edinburgh in 1969 where they have led three churches within that city – one of them for twenty two years.
Prompted by the needs of their youngest daughter who is a Downs Syndrome lady, Brian and Shirley founded the Redwoods Caring Foundation [see: www.redwoods.org.uk] providing residential & day care for adults with learning difficulties. In this ministry, the various staff teams express on a daily basis the love of our Father in a very practical way and also look for the supernatural intervention of the Father (as He has promised in a prophetic word)
For the past 40 years Brian has been travelling regularly to Poland. It was in 1999 on one of those visits that he heard of Jack Winter and Jack Frost. This came at a time when he and his wife were at the end of themselves, ready to give up ministry and retire from church life! God used Jack’s ministry to bring them into an initial realisation of how much their Heavenly Father loves them and began a journey of revelation going deeper into the Father’s heart. The emphasis of Brian’s ministry was changed so that for the past eighteen years he shares about the Father’s heart of love through local church visits, conferences, and since 2012, Fatherheart Schools.
His vision is to see leaders and congregations equipped and trained, growing into full maturity in Christ, and experiencing the amazing reality of the Father’s unconditional love.
