Who's Who


Team Rector,  Rev'd Dave Brown

Hello, I'm Dave, the Team Rector of the Newton Abbot Team Ministry.

I started following Jesus as a child, and via teenage questioning and after careers in supermarket retail, pensions administration and 12 years teaching, I felt God's call to full time Christian ministry.  I trained at Oak Hill College in north London, and after a curacy in Sidmouth, I spent 11 years as Rector of two churches in north Hertfordshire before coming to Newton Abbot in 2022.

My passions in church are for clear, faithful and relevant Bible teaching, growing discipleship, compassionate pastoral care and active evangelism.  Outside of church I enjoy most sports and support Luton Town and the New York Mets!  I'm a keen but high-handicap golfer and love walking the moors and the coasts of Devon with my wife Judy.

Rev'd Gareth Regan, Team Vicar

Hi, my name is Gareth and I am one of the team vicars. I was licensed to the benefice in June 2017.

The main focus of my ministry is centred around new housing areas, specifically Houghton Barton and Rew farm. I am really excited to see what God is going to do in these new and growing communities, alongside doing the other half my job which is being a priest in Newton Abbot working in the five churches that make up our benefice.

I am married with three children, and in my spare time, I enjoy cycling and building computers.
