I first came to Christian faith when I was 15 years old, thanks in no small measure to the prayers of my Godfather, through Confirmation classes and the witness of a priest who was able both to explain to me how the claims of Christianity made sense of the world and to demonstrate how faith could transform life.

I have been seeking (often through considerable struggle) to follow the way of Jesus ever since. My call to ordination came when I was in my early-twenties and after University, a couple  of years working in industry, and three years training in Bristol,  I have spent the last 30 years largely in Parish ministry until responding to this latest challenge.
