Revd Dr Trevor Hutton BA, MA (Manchester)
Lecturer in Evangelism and Church Development, Executive Director of Momentum UK
I’m quite musical, and you’ll only need to be around for a while to discover my love for the hymnology of Lennon & McCartney.
I come from Belfast, Northern Ireland, and arrived at NTC as a student, spending five years here before moving to the Glasgow area to work as a pastor and church planter for 12 years. I returned to Manchester and NTC to take my current post in 2007, a role which integrates academic life with leadership of Momentum, a missional agency working to build partnerships across denominations to foster evangelism, church planting and fresh forms of church.
My PhD in Missiology explored how our understanding of the Trinity could shape and inform the planting of new churches particularly in the areas of creativity, community, and contextualisation. The aim was to provide a theological framework for the pioneering of new communities through engaging in critical conversations with a range of Trinitarian theologians alongside the planting of Didsbury Community Church. This enabled theology and practice to mutually inform one another and provided a setting in which the principles and ideas created could be applied in a real life setting.
I’m married to Sharon, and we have two sons. Living in England and being from Belfast with a Welsh wife and Scottish children has problems all of its own when it comes to home nations football! I’m quite musical, and you’ll only need to be around for a while to discover my love for the hymnology of Lennon & McCartney.
I serve as Team Leader of Didsbury Community Church—a recent church plant. I teach with Cafe Church Network, and I’m part of the core group of Network, the Manchester expression of the Evangelical Alliance. I am also a national trustee for Urban Expression, an agency committed to creative church planting in the inner city.
