Marcus has been the senior minister at St Peter’s Barge, London’s only floating church, since 2004. He is married to Lina and they have four children – Sebastian, Reuben, Harriet, and Nelson – and a Beagle called Sally. He studied French & German at Cambridge University, where he spent many happy hours rowing, and is also a graduate of Oak Hill Theological College.
Apart from a brief spell in banking he has worked for churches. He grew up in Manchester, but on the rare occasions he is now not in London, he can usually be found hanging about on an island just off Stockholm. He enjoys chopping down trees and kayaking. He lives on the Isle of Dogs and his children go to local schools in Limehouse, Bow, and Whitechapel.
