Bishop Auckland Methodist Church 

“My name is David Briggs, and I am the minster of Etherley, Hamsterley, Windmill and Witton Park chapels.

I am married and have three children and four grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. 

Before coming into ministry, I have driven a truck, delivered sandwiches, managed shoe shops and run my own cheese wholesale and retail business.

Until recently I was a biker, riding my Yamaha XV 750 around the country, a member of the Christian Bikers Association, however, after the sale of my bike am now restricted to a prayerful supporter.

I have seen and experienced good and bad in life with many ups and downs, but have a great desire to share the gospel of Jesus in a real sense.

I think debt is a real scourge of modern society and as a trained Money Coach for the charity “Christians against Poverty” look to sharing a gospel that is meaningful and radical in a social sense, as well as a deeply spiritual meaning to my and I pray others lives.
