Rev Ian Stackhouse
Senior Pastor

Ian Stackhouse became the Senior Pastor of Millmead in 2004 and has been in ministry for over thirty years. He is married to Susanna and they have four sons who are at various stages of young adult life. Ian has authored four books—the Gospel Driven Church being his PhD thesis—and has contributed various other chapters and articles. As part of leading Millmead, he occasionally travels in the UK and overseas to support our World Partners, ministering in Churches, seminaries, conferences and retreats.

For relaxation Ian likes to go walking in the Surrey Hills, reading anything he can put his hands on, writing poetry (not very well), and singing anything from Bruce Springsteen to Bryn Terfel. He and his family are avid supporters of Burnley FC, which in recent years has changed from being a crushing burden into something of a blessing. One final thing: Ian is also unofficial IT consultant to the rest of the staff team!

We have a team of people available to provide support for those in need of extra care in addition to the support that pastorates give.

We have two Pastoral Care Teams, one that works closely with adults and one that works with families. Most of our pastoral care is done through our pastorates (small groups), but please don’t worry if you are not connected with a pastorate, just contact the Church Office.
