Live Interview with Revd David Martin
Rev’d David Martin grew up in Northern Ireland and enjoyed serving there as curate (2015-2018) in St Malachy’s Hillsborough Parish Church, but for the majority of his life he has lived and worked in Dublin. After graduating from Trinity College Dublin he moved to London for one year to enrol in the Cornhill Training Course, after which he was blessed to serve as assistant for two years with Rev’d Tom Oats in Greenwich, Connecticut, before moving back to Dublin.
Over the last 15 years, David has married Honor and they have been blessed with four lively children (Caleb 12, Abigail 10, Clara 7 and Daniel 5). He has also had the privilege to be involved in the revitalisation of Immanuel Church Dublin, was ordained into the Church of Ireland, and authored 'Transgenderism: You, your family, the gospel and transgenderism’, and ‘Different: Our witness and the sins that work against it’.
He is currently Director of Irish Church Missions (ICM), an indigenous Anglican Church Planting Platform. Since 1849 ICM has been involved in pioneering new and strengthening existing Anglican churches in Ireland. Together, along with other ICM churches he is exploring how to evangelise new churches into existence in the greater Dublin area. The most recent of these attempts is Christ Church North Dublin. David leads the small launch team for this new plant and they are trying to learn quickly from anyone and everyone, especially from their own mistakes.
David’s focus of his August's devotionals will be on the book of 1 Peter. To get to know more about him, his ministry and his devotions Ernie Didot interviewed him live on Facebook on July 30 and you can catchup here.
