Formerly a BBC radio and TV presenter, Adrian started working life as a football reporter on The Times newspaper. His book “The Shock of Your Life” has been translated into many languages. The sequel, ‘Aftershock’ tackles the most common objections to Christianity in the form of a novel.
Adrian moved to London from Birmingham with his wife, Julia, in 2004 to help start ChristChurch London. He served as a leader (or “elder”) in the church for many years.
Julia, formerly a secondary school science teacher specializing in Biology, now spends much of her time caring for their four children, Esther, Bethany, Grace and Emma.
After 10 years at ChristChurch London, which is now a large church several hundred strong, the Holloways are now part of Everyday Church, Wimbledon.
Everyday Church is made up of 3 churches that used to be known as Queens Road Church, Kingston Baptist and Southfields Baptist, now all operating under the banner of Everyday Church, one church, on three sites in South West London.
Meanwhile, Adrian continues to serve churches all over the UK as a visiting speaker. Most of these churches are part of one of five ‘spheres’ of churches. These new groupings of churches are called “Commission,” “Catalyst,” “Christ Central,” “Relational Mission” and “New Ground” – which when added together make up around 250 churches in the UK under the banner of “Newfrontiers”.
Everyday Church, Wimbledon is part of “New Ground Churches” which is led by Dave Holden. Dave Holden, who leads New Community Church, Sidcup, provides accountability, oversight and direction to Adrian.
Adrian is funded through a charitable trust called The John 3:16 Trust. Individual givers and churches can give to the Trust by clicking on “Support” on the home page of this website.
