After twenty years spent in teaching and ministerial training in Durham and Cambridge, I am now a member of a team ministry in Ashford with Paul Dean, a United Reformed colleague, working within the South Kent Circuit.
I have thoroughly enjoyed coming into Circuit life again – I previously spent ten years working in the old London SE District and five years in Durham. Some things have changed; many challenges remain constant. I also very much value my role with the District: the Eastern area includes all the Kent churches (and one over the Sussex border, Wadhurst).
I am married to Laurel, and we have a son Ben, who is married and works in London. I remain committed to the importance of rigourous training for all types of ministry, and especially the need to help all worship leaders and preachers be fully equipped for their awesome calling. I also try to pursue my own particular research interests in the relationship of science and theology.
