As the Rector of Combe and Stonesfield churches I became a governor in May 2021. I have loved working in schools since I was ordained in 1990, and have had the privilege of serving as a governor in both rural and city primary schools. As well as parish ministry, I was a university chaplain for eighteen years. I am committed to supporting education for all and to building links between the school, the church and the wider community. My wife and I have two grown up daughters, and are soon to be grandparents.
