I grew up in a church family in the Stroud Valley’s. I was in the church choir and went on to be a server and sacristan. I was a member of the ‘Fellowship of Vocation’ in Gloucester Diocese, so the call was there then.
My working life was spent in finance, employed by a bank for some time. Wherever we lived I was always involved in church life. The call came again to develop my ministry and I was licensed as a Reader and then went on to Ordination training. Within our church family I mainly look after Ripple parish, where I live.
Married to Ellen we have two children and four grandchildren. I enjoy our family holidays in France and relax reading, gardening and cross stitch.
