He  worked in churches in Birmingham and Leicester, then returned to Loughborough University as chaplain for 6 years, before moving to West Wales in 2004, ending up being the ministry team leader for 15 churches!

His other roles have included spiritual director, new religious movements officer, and interfaith officer. He is an active member of  CANA (Christians Awakening to a New Awareness) and PCN (Progressive Christian Network).

Blue Sky God” was his first book, so named because it contains some ‘blue sky thinking’ about the relationship between Science and Christianity – and it was written on the coast of Pembrokeshire with its expansive blue skies.

It is called “The Wisdom Series” and the Book One was published in October 2020 entitled “Christianity Expanding: Into Universal Spirituality.” Book Two will be published in March 2022, called “Expanding Scriptures: Lost and Found.” It can be pre-ordered on Amazon.
