Graham was born in the Croydon area and after school worked for a short time in industry before training to teach. He went on to teach Physics and Music at a comprehensive school in Crawley before training for the Baptist ministry at Spurgeon’s College.
From 1990 Graham served as the minister of Haywards Heath Baptist Church, later as senior minister in a team. In 2003 he moved to Cardiff to become the minister of Albany Road Baptist Church, while also teaching doctrine part-time at the University of Cardiff. He completed his PhD in 1998 after studying part-time at King’s College, London; this was published in 2005 as Revelation and the Spirit. He joined the staff as tutor in Christian Doctrine and Ethics in January 2010. From 2011 he is also Tutor for Admissions and Recruitment so he may be the first tutor with whom you get in contact.
Graham has always sought to root theology in the life of the local church, particularly in preparing the local church to engage in effective mission in contemporary culture. Particular research interests include the doctrine of God, creation and the relationship between theology, science and the arts.
He is married to Susan, who is a primary school teacher; they have two grown-up children. Leisure interests include music, reading and country walking.
