About Future Perfect
There is another Barry Cooper on the web, an ex-narcotics officer who offers suggestions on how to “never get busted again”. Given that I’ve received mail asking me for advice on the best place to hide one’s stash, I can only imagine that the other Barry has received extremely complicated emails asking him to explain the Trinity. Probably not what you want to read when you’re mostly stoned.
I was born and raised in Epsom, Surrey. While I was supposed to be studying English Language and Literature at St Catherine’s College, Oxford, what I actually did was lots of sketch-based comedy and stand-up (with my own shows and also The Oxford Revue). I then trained as an actor at Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, and appeared on stage in various places, including Shakespeare’s Globe and the National Theatre. I also co-ran a theatre company for seven years.
In May 2010, I completed an MA in Christian Studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Chicago. More recently, I spent five months interning with Mark Dever at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington DC.
I now live in London, and am helping to plant Trinity West church in Shepherd’s Bush.
