Graham Beynon, BEng, MSc, BA, PhD

Director of Independent Ministry Training

Graham Beynon believes in the local church and in theological training for the sake of the local church. He tries to fulfil these convictions by being pastor of Grace Church, Cambridge, and Director of Independent Ministry Training at Oak Hill.


Graham believes we need church leaders and workers who are biblically grounded, theologically astute, historically aware and pastorally focused. He teaches on a variety of areas including leadership, church polity, church history and corporate worship.


His PhD was from St Andrews University, examining the theology of Isaac Watts. He is the author of a number of books including Emotions: Living Life in Colour (2012, IVP), God’s New Community: New Testament Patterns for Today’s Church (2005, IVP), Planting for the Gospel: a hands on guide to church planting (2011, Christian Focus) and Isaac Watts: His Life and Thought (2013, Christian Focus).


Graham was previously an audiological scientist working with hearing and balance disorders. He then moved to pastor churches in Leicester and Cambridge. He has particularly been involved in leading church plants. He is married to Charis and they have three children. In his spare time he enjoys watching TV with his wife, walking with their dog, trying his hand at DIY, watching sport and playing 5-a-side football.
