I currently serve as minister of the United Reformed Church in Morpeth, Widdrington and Great Bavington, and have taken on the role of President of the South East Northumberland Ecumenical Area.  My family and I live in Morpeth with two of my three boys attending schools in the town, and my eldest son working and living in Newcastle. My wife, Louise, is in the third year of training for ministry with the United Reformed Church at colleges in Scotland.

The three main areas in which I focus my ministry are:

  • preaching and teaching
  • Creating community
  • Children’s and Youth work

Previous to my post here I was a minister on the Norfolk and Suffolk border, serving the churches there and acting as Ecumenical Officer, Rural Advocate and Pastoral Advocate for the Norfolk and Waveney Area Partnership. Prior to that I spent many years in the chocolate industry and, I have to say, chocolate remains one of my many passions!

Every blessing,
