About me

I come from Halesowen, and studied German and French before training for the priesthood. Ordained in 1980 I served in parishes in Kidderminster, Dudley and Worcester, with a spell as Rural Dean and on General Synod, before becoming Director of Development and Training in 2006. In November 2014 I was installed as Archdeacon.

I keep up my German with many contacts to the church in Germany, including parish and diocesan partnerships and exchanges.

I enjoy music and singing, and have been fortunate enough to make use of that at work in facilitating conferences and courses. I’ve been known to enjoy a drink and like walking and keeping up with friends.
