Ben Thorp

Ben has been involved in Whiteinch for almost 20 years now, originally working for the church as part of a 2nd gap year before University. He remained part of the church whilst at Glasgow University, where he also got married to Heather. They now have 2 children: Mira (8) and Jamie (6).

Since taking the Invest course together in 2008/9, Heather is now involved in reaching spiritual seekers with the Source project, and Ben has been taking more of a role in developing his teaching gift at Whiteinch. Having been involved in leadership at the very beginning of the church, Ben was invited to return to the leadership team at the beginning of 2011.

Ben is passionate about teaching, and introducing people to the Bible and theology, particularly those moments when the Holy Spirit illuminates a passage and brings real transformation into someone’s life. He is also invigorated by church strategy, both within his role on the leadership team, and his involvement in teaching on the Invest course.

In his free time, Ben loves to watch films, play guitar, fiddle with computers, and support Liverpool Football Club.
