Rev. Ashley Lovett


I am the Free Church Chaplain for the University.

Prior to joining the team in September 2021, I spent over 20 years serving as a local church minister for Baptist churches in Grays, Southend-on-Sea, and Porthcawl (South Wales).

In 2020, my wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. We have 3 grown-up children and have fostered a growing number of babies and toddlers. Our house is rarely quiet, much to the disappointment of our two cats.

My great passion is people and I love getting to know new people as well as catching up with those I’ve known for years. I enjoy watching most sport, like to run (when not injured), and love listening to music, especially my growing collection of second-hand vinyl LPs.

Please come and say hello and let’s have a coffee* together.

*Other drinks are acceptable!
