I joined the former Warrington circuit in 2006 after spending nine years in Derbyshire. I have now served over 20 years of presbyteral ministry in the Methodist church, having served as a lay worker in Sheffield before ministerial training. I was at Cliff College in 1991 – 1992. I began preaching in 1983 at Hazel Grove Methodist Church. Before entering the ministry, I worked as a Senior Mechanical and Electrical engineer in the construction industry. I have significant interest in how we use our church premises, and how we may adapt or rebuild to meet this present age. I also am I bit of a technie, and am more than happy to consider how we use technology in the life of the Church (I was part of the Easter People Tech team for some 10 years).
I have been married for over 25 years to my best friend Jane, we have a daughter Naomi who loves to sing, and a son Jacob who is an apprentice mechanic at GT Cars. In my free time, I enjoy watching films, motorcycling, motorsport in general, and doing Track Days in a race prepared Ford Puma my son and I built.
