Hello and welcome to the Christ Church website!
Originally from Cornwall, I moved to London in the mid-eighties where I studied Environmental Science before working in the wholefood industry.
In 1990 I entered full-time ministry as a church-based youth minister. I studied theology at Trinity College in Bristol before being ordained in 1995. Over the last 30 years I have served in large and mid-sized churches, in both urban and rural settings. I have also held various chaplaincy positions, including Lead Chaplain at the University of Gloucestershire (1999-2004) and as Lead Chaplain with Merseyside Police (2011-2015).
I am married to Maggie, an artist, art trainer, and mental health campaigner. We have two sons, Ben and Finlay.
In my spare time, I like listening to jazz, walking our dog Joe, and supporting West Ham United.

I look forward to meeting you…
