Christopher is a professional actor who trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School as a mature student back in the early 90s, after working for Barclays Bank for 27 years!  He has toured extensively around most of the UK, as well as spending some time in France, Germany and Dubai, playing a wide variety of roles, from Winnie-the-Pooh to Winston Churchill.  He has also performed at the Chichester Festival Theatre, on the Edinburgh Fringe and in the West End.  He lists "Only Fools and Horses", "Silent Witness", "Midsomer Murders" and "Foyle's War" among his TV credits, but Hope FM is his first job as a radio presenter, although his voice has featured on jingles and idents for the station in the past.

Christopher was born in the City of London and after moves to Horsham, Hampton and Hammersmith, he made his home in Corfe Mullen in 1974, and later in Canford Heath since 1980.  He is married with 5 children (and 13 grandchildren!) and worships at St. Paul's Church, Canford Heath, where he is the PCC secretary. He presents "Through the Gates", on alternate Sunday evenings from 9pm to 11pm, and "Classical Delights", on alternate Wednesday evenings from 9pm to 11pm, and is loving every minute.  "It offers such a wonderful chance to give something back in return for the love God has showered on me, and to share my faith through words and music."
