Terry is a pastor serving in the southern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia, having worked in education both in the UK and Perth. Terry has been involved in Christian ministry in many ways over the years from teaching to evangelism and from music ministry to pastoral care.
Terry and Sue moved to Australia in 2003 from the UK. Today they have two grown-up children both married, and four grandchildren.
Terry started writing in 2003 when he had an idea for a Christian novel with an adventure involving time travel. He self-published and sold a few hundred copies to friends and family. While studying for a Masters degree at Bible College, his passion for writing was re-ignited.
In Jan 2021, Terry published ‘Looking Back to Move Forward: embracing setbacks for greater fruitfulness’ with Kharis Publishing, a Christian non-fiction book designed to encourage those facing disappointment or failure.
Terry writes a popular weekly blog at terrynightingale.com called ‘4-minute devotions’, short Bible-centred messages for the busy Christian on the go. At the time of writing, he has over 1700 subscribers.
