Meet the Team


Rev Huw Sperring


My name is Huw and I come from South Wales. I studied theology at Westminster College Oxford and worked for the Church Army and the Methodist children`s charity NCH . I worked as a Circuit Lay Worker in Southport for three years following my time in London with NCH and felt called by God to the explore the Methodist ministry. After a year of candidating, I was accepted for training and sent to Lincoln Theological College.

I started work here in September 2017 bringing with me my wife Hilary and three children Lucy, Harrison and Elle.

I lived and worked in Gateshead from 1986 until 1987 working with the Church Army in Dunstan, so it is good to be back in Gateshead.

My previous appointments were in the Darlington, Sunderland South and Middlesbrough and Eston Circuits.
