I am a former Police Officer and Police chaplain who studied for ordination on the Northern ordination course before ordination within the then Wakefield Diocese. I completed my curacies in Anglo Catholic parishes and would consider myself a liberal catholic.
On retirement I was recruited into the Army and have served in Afghanistan, Cyprus, Mali, Kenya and south Sudan as well as postings throughout the UK I currently work in the NW of England within Army Regional Command
Married to Ali and Anglican priest I am used to life in the vicarage and juggling priorities.
I understand Self-supporting and Stipendiary ministry well and am used to relating to young people my congregations are usually under 40 years of age.
I enjoy having a project on the go, a keen motorcyclist, gardener and avid reader and enjoy time at our cottage in France
