I am a Christian minister interested in practical spirituality: how prayer and action mesh together and become a way of life. I’m especially interested in exploring this in relation to ecology. From 2014 to 2021, Christian engagement with the climate and ecological crisis was the main focus of a ‘special category ministry’ based in Brighton, on the south coast of England. I am now in sunny Newcastle upon Tyne, where I am once more in parish ministry at Trinity Church, Gosforth.
Off duty, I welcome any excuse to spend time outdoors, especially in the woods, although I find music a good excuse to be indoors, especially if that’s where the piano (or guitar or ukulele) is or where the dance (50s jive) is being held. I’m married to textile artist Louise and we have three ‘children’ who are older than they used to be and mostly live elsewhere.
