Dr Phil Temple - Associate Pastor
Phil was part of the first wave of graduates to qualify from the medical school at the University of East Anglia. Originally from Sheffield, Phil became a part of Proclaimers after being strongly impacted by the vision of Pastor Tom to build a church that will see the salvation of the city. Pastor Tom’s passion to reach people in a relevant, 21st century way gripped Phil and he immediately threw himself in to being a part of the vision.
Phil now works full time as a Doctor and volunteers as an Associate Pastor. He is a vital member of our preaching team with a desperate desire to see the local church rise up to be what God intended it to be, the hope of the world.
Phil is married to the wonderful Helena.
