Born and raised in the North East of England, for the past 20 years I have lived with my family in Birmingham, where I served in different appointments as a Methodist presbyter. In 2015 I was awarded a PhD by the University of Birmingham for my research into the Labour Church, a radical Social Gospel movement. I continue with my research into labour history as religious history.

My ministry has included serving in post-industrial communities, outer urban estates, workplace chaplaincies, and currently in Birmingham city centre. At present I am a Co-Superintendent minister of Birmingham Methodist Circuit and Methodist presbyter of The Church at Carrs Lane (URC / Methodist LEP).
