Optimus Prime. Captain America. The Mekon of Mekonta. They’re all leaders. Although the latter is notably evil, they all inhabit a position of authority. Optimus regularly leads the Autobots to victory over the Deceptions, Captain America battles the Red Skull while dealing with fractions within his own ranks, and although the Mekon has been out of the limelight for about 20 years, you just know that he’s back home on Venus, polishing his big green bonce, and drawing up battle plans to annihilate the human race. Although he’d better get a move on. Dan Dare will be Dan Dared by the time the Mekon gets his act together.
Some people couldn’t lead a horse to water, but Pastor Peter Loftus can lead the horse to a non-polluted stream and convince it to drink up. Yes, Pastor Peter Loftus is a leader, not just of thirsty horses, but also of men, women, and children. Don’t worry, he’s fully CRB checked, so your sprogs are in safe hands.
As a Pastor, Peter is a “People Person” and fully equipped to spin a few plates. His God-given talents mean he’s a speaker, a confidant, a therapist, a spiritual father, and, first and foremost, a friend. He’s also dabbled with leading worship, but is the first to admit that it’s not really his forte, and attendance fell by 90% during his worship debut.
Peter is a Man of Faith, a Man of Courage, and a Man About Town. In fact he can often be seen propping up the bar in The Dog and Duck, while sipping a pint of Adnams or sampling a nice G&T. This is his “Me” time, so he’d appreciate you not talking to him about church related business, especially at the close of “Happy Hour”. Although he’d be happy to discuss Classic Doctor Who, country walks, and fine ale.
It doesn’t matter if you’re Christian, Agnostic, Jew, or you’ve just decided that the god who asks you to kill people is probably either imaginary or Satan in disguise… please do get in touch with Pastor Peter. He’s a good egg, and willing to come and visit you in your house, workplace, prison, or perhaps at a neutral location that’s equidistant to his gaff and your gaff. You’re also more than welcome to visit Peter in his native humble abode, but please excuse the mess, it’s not uncommon for Chez Loftus to double as an ironing parlour for the local refugee charity. The life-size Dalek in the lounge can also be slightly disconcerting when discussing spiritual matters, but if you’re troubled then Peter can just chuck a dish cloth over the eye stalk.
Unfortunately Peter dropped his iPhone down a well, and he’d rather not post his home number online, but he can still be reached via the contact page, or Twitter, if you don’t mind keeping it brief.
