Main responsibilities

  • Parish ministry and mission
  • Work in education

I came to Worcester in 1994, and though I have stayed in the same parish, my work has changed over the years, both because of the ‘extras’ I have taken on and also because people come and go in parish life – congregations are not static - and we have developed a rich mix of lay ministries. 

And if church life has seen change, the world of education has been in ever accelerating revolution: my role here includes support for the Diocesan Director of Education and her team and promoting the role of the Church in education.\

Other roles

  • Vicar, Barbourne St Stephen, Worcester
  • Rural Dean of Worcester East
  • Chair, Diocesan House of Clergy
  • Member of General Synod
  • Chaplain, Royal Grammar School, Worcester
  • Surrogate

About me

Before ordination I taught French and German, then worked in Zambia for a couple of years. My wife is an art teacher, before which she was the Diocesan Communications and Bishop’s Press Officer. 

We have two grown up daughters. We enjoy travelling, especially to France, walking and visiting galleries; we love food and drink and good friends – preferably all three together.
