"I was ordained in 1997 and have worked in Kent, London, Scotland and Devon.  Married to Frances we have two children, Nathaniel and Francesca.  Originally I was qualified in computing and have done some teaching at further education level.  Catholic in spirituality and evangelical in heart - I have been the parish priest of the benefice of Salcombe, Malborough, Galmpton and Hope Cove since 2008. During that time I was the rural dean for five years and am currently the warden and director of our new intentional community, St Peters. My theology leanings are towards a generous orthodoxy that could be described as post-liberal. In 2015 I wrote a rule of life called 'The Extra Mile' aimed at busy people trying to find some sustainable structure in prayer, discipleship, and service. Currently, I am working on another book called 'The Shift' which combines Benedict's Ladder of Humility with the Twelve Step Recovery Programme. This will be aimed at people wanting to go deeper in discipleship both in mind and heart."
