Our Team

Student Group Leaders
The Student Ministry at St John’s is led by two couples. Ian and Katie Shelley and Tom and Grace Milton.

Tom and Grace have both been part of St John’s since being students. Tom did his Undergraduate at Birmingham from 2004 – 2007 and Grace did a Masters and PhD from 2007 – 2014. Tom now works for the Methodist Church in Birmingham as a Communications Officer, and Grace works at the University of Birmingham in the Department of Theology and Religion. Both are part time and spend the rest of their time looking after their daughter Penny who was born in September 2016. Tom is a keen lover of the outdoors and enjoys hiking, kayaking and generally anything involving being outside. Grace enjoys sewing, musicals, comedy and the outdoors.

Ian and Katie have been members of St John’s since they got married in 2009. Ian has lived in Birmingham since 2003 as he did his teaching degree at Birmingham City University. They have one daughter, Jasmine, who was born at Christmas in 2015. Ian works as a primary school teacher and Katie works part-time as a children’s doctor. Ian loves music, particularly percussion, and is involved in the worship team at St John’s. Katie enjoys craft and DIY, especially upcycling things she finds on eBay! Together they like to travel, watch plays and listen to music.
