I am Married to Helen who is currently working as a Matron on Covid wards. She is also serves as a Churchwarden. We have four children James, Matthew, Louise and Robert.
I originally trained as a decorative painter signwriter. I started my ministerial journey as a Reader with St Johns Higham Nr Rochester, which I served for approximately 12 years. Following on I trained at St Benedict’s Abbey with St Augustine’s Theological College in Kent. I was ordained Deacon in September 2018 at Rochester Cathedral. I have enjoyed my time as a Deacon it has been full-on with lots of interesting events and opportunities, which I am sure will facilitate my future growth as a Priest. Furthermore, I feel serving my time as a Deacon has enriched an understanding of what it means to be, as essential preparation for the journey ahead.
I am being ordained by the Bishop of Richborough on September 27th at 2 pm at All Saints Perry Street Northfleet Kent. I am looking forward to continuing working at All Saints as a Priest, as I realise what an immense privilege it will be to serve this community as a Priest.
