Rev Anthony Rose

Anthony has been Vicar of St George’s since 1998.

 

He trained for the Anglican ministry in Bristol and was ordained in his home city of Birmingham in 1986. In 1990, after serving as a curate on the edge of the city, he became Rector of two parishes in rural Somerset.

 

As well as life leading a busy church, Anthony also leads the South Essex New Wine Church Leaders Network.

 

He is passionate about bringing Holy Spirit renewal to God’s church and to reaching out into the community around with the Gospel. He is also very interested in mental health issues, particularly those resulting from childhood experiences such as ‘absent’ fathers.

 

In 2008 he published a book, ‘Stranger on the Shore: A personal story of struggle with renewal and inner healing’, in which he tells his own story and looks at the many things that make us the people we are.

 

Anthony is married to Jane Rose and they have three adult children.
