Stewart’s Christian life began when he was 13. A teacher at school invited him to a Christian camp, where he became a disciple of Jesus Christ. Four years later he was completely changed by a powerful encounter with the Holy Spirit, followed by further encounters with the Spirit in 1996 which “completely wasted me!”
Graduating with a degree in Drama, Theatre and TV Studies, Stewart intended to be an Opera Singer, but happily married Deborah instead, going on to have four gorgeous daughters.
Stewart and Deborah moved to Bath in 1987 after God spoke to him in a dream, confirming the same message through Deborah. They had no family in Bath and no connections but knew the move was for a purpose, a purpose that looked a little hazy when, having built up a successful recruitment business, Stewart lost almost everything in the early 2000’s. God, though, knew what He was doing as this released Stewart to be available to be part of a new leadership team at Bath City Church, six months later.
Stewart is the author of a growing number of books, the latest being, ‘Pearl Hunters, becoming a people of presence’.
