Steve Taylor

Missionary in Southwark

"I count it a privilege to serve in an urban multicultural city like London"

Steve came to London in 2000 with a background in pastoral ministry, cross-cultural international student work and experience of five years as an English teacher in China; a great foundation and preparation for the next two decades of ministry with LCM in London.

"I count it a privilege to serve in an urban multicultural city like London with colleagues who have shared and modelled for me a diligent but “less showy or glamorous” ministry. I've experienced mission with those on the margins and those facing the trials and troubles of this life - particularly with people such as the homeless guests at the Webber Street Day Centre, patients fighting for life on King’s College hospital wards, and seniors living alone or confined in residential homes throughout Southwark (especially over the last couple of years of pandemic restrictions)".

Steve is part of the LCM Southwark team who are building relationships and encouraging churches throughout the borough.

"My focus is on the increasing proportion of seniors that will characterise our population in the coming years – the generation that grew up with little or declining exposure to the gospel in their formative years".

Recently churches in Peckham grasped the opportunity to work together in caring for asylum seekers and refugees. Steve has used his TEFL skills to build friendships and share the good news of Christ with these needy folk.

Steve lives with his Chinese wife Bi Chun Hui “Beth” in Brockley, and their son and daughter-in-law recently presented them with their first grandchild, Joanna.
