Steve Talbot

Hi. I’m Steve Talbot and I have been the pastor at Hope Rolleston since 2016. My lovely wife Tara and I have been involved in Hope Church, especially the Creative Ministries teams for many years. We have two young boys, Jonty and Liam who are avid fans of American Football—“Go Packers!” and sport in general. My favourite hobby is extreme ironing, in fact I was the 2008 World Champion, narrowly beating out the “Dominator” Vasily Petrovich. When I’m not working on my signature pressed white shirt, you can find me writing gripping sermons in the hopes of eliciting a resounding “Amen!” from a stoic Rolleston crowd.

But seriously, I have a heart for leading people to Jesus and if that starts with a cup of coffee, all the better. Give me a ring. I’d love to chat.
