Neil Loxley works as our Strategic Lead at Kingsland, helping to shape the culture, vision and direction of the church, mainly through his preaching on a Sunday morning and overseeing our training hub. Neil has been a Minister at Kingsland Church for over 35 years. “I love to see people grow in their relationship with God, and it excites me to see this time and again as people get hold of who Jesus is, how the Father loves them or what the Spirit can do. It’s exciting to see the changes this brings.”
