G'day. My name is Graham Llewellyn Grove
You can visit my personal website at: www.grove.id.au/graham.
I'm in my late thirties, previously from Adelaide in South Australia but now living in the Isle of Wight in the UK. Today I'm married to my beautiful wife Nicole and have been blessed with three fantastic children. I'm part of Castlehold Baptist Church (Isle of Wight) and working as a Palliative Medicine Consultant. My day to day ministry involves living out my Christian faith in front of my kids, friends and patients, always being ready to listen to others and talk to them about my own trust in Jesus, and helping out with worship leading and music at my local church. Prior to coming to England I worked part-time as a church minister for 6 years and was ordained as a Baptist pastor.
My faith is in Christ - I believe he died for me (and you) so that God no longer sees the sin in me. I believe the Bible is God's word and that it can speak to every one of us, if we only have open hearts. I believe, although I still have many faults, that God is moulding me for an eternal relationship with him, and that my purpose in this life is to do his will particularly through loveing him with my full heart, and loving all my neighbours.

Over the years I've tried to create a lot of content related to my areas of interest and theological training. I hope they are of some use to some of you. Quite a few of my articles are personal opinions and reflections, and of course, like all people, these develop over the years and sometimes change dramatically. If you want to give me feedback or constructive criticism, please feel free too.
- Sermons I have prepared
- Essays I have submitted during my theological study

A while back my wife and I back-packed around the world for a year. Some of the photos related to religion we took can be viewed here.
