I am in my final year training for ordained ministry at Cranmer hall. Prior to this I was a civil servant for 13 years and come from Easington Colliery.
I have two beautiful daughters and have been happily married to Donna for 7 years.
I feel called to serve in areas where there are significant socio-economic challenges, and my research this year is looking at the impact that debt has on our communities and our ministry.
I am ordained, a part-time pastoral tutor in Cranmer Hall and a full time mum to two small boys!
I live in Redcar with my husband Matt (Vicar of Kirkleatham Parish), and at Cranmer I teach modules on Theological Reflection, Conflict Transformation and Preparation for Public Ministry, in addition to co-leading a group called ‘Mums in Ministry’.
My research has included looking at insights for reading Scripture from 2 Samuel 12 and reading the Ten Commandments as good news for women.
I am a Chaplain at Oxford Brookes University, and a founding member and current secretary of AMEN (Anglican Minority Ethnic Network).
I am also a Vocations adviser, a trainer in Unconscious Bias, a tutor in Contextual Theology, and am somehow also currently doing a PhD!
I am married to Becky and we have two young children.
I’m a parish priest in Hartlepool, with 2 Anglo-Catholic churches, one evangelical church and one crazy-busy ‘Soup’ Kitchen.
I am passionate about feeding the hungry, housing the homeless, setting the captives free, my dog Maggie and finding the next unexpectedly vegan treat.
I’m always planning my next tattoo, and the one after that…
