About me

Gender Male
Industry Religion
Occupation Anglican Priest
Location Sunderland, Wearside, United Kingdom
Introduction I am the Chaplain to the University of Sunderland, and prior to that I was the city centre priest for Bradford, in West Yorkshire, England. Married to Catriona from Uruguay, we have two gorgeous girls, Clara and Angela. I have worked with two 'emerging churches' called 'JustSpace' and 'SoulSpace', but this blog is written in a personal capacity following the publication of my book 'A Just Church'. I teach and try to live out the principles of liberation theology within my local context. I am grateful to Christ for the hope and love he shares with the world. I am a pluralist, (many religions, one God) rooted in Christ. I am a socialist, an artist and a lapsed Atheist. I am a type '1' according to the enneagram personality test - and far from perfect!
Interests Architecture, drawing, playing with my children, singing a new song, creating another possible world, protesting!
