Simon Deeks

Executive Pastor & Centre Overseer

I provide overall leadership to KingsGate Cambridge with my wife Zia and a great team. You will find me hosting and speaking at both Sunday and Friday night services on a regular basis, as well as being involved in most aspects of church life, including leading a Connect Group on a Tuesday morning in Café Nerro. Outside of Cambridge, I am involved in the overall leadership of KingsGate, with a particular emphasis on teaching, pastoral work, freedom ministry and overseas work.

Married to Zia, proud Father to William and Hannah, and unbearably delighted to be a grandparent to Elsie. Born in Nigeria, raised in Yorkshire, degree from Durham, 20 years secondary school teacher and over 11 years as a church pastor.

In my spare time I enjoy tandem riding with Zia, reading and watching TV box sets and most sport, and eating!
