I live near Cambridge, UK, and attempt to practise the arts of music making, poetry, painting, photography, and listening.

A built environment professional with experience in the public, private and not for profit sectors, I am passionate about sustainability and fair trade. I am pleased to devote more time to develop my skills for lay ministry in the local church.

My published works are:

Validating Ministry

Lost for Words: Decline into dementia

Amongst these Pilgrim People: Poems of ministry and place

I regularly blog on church, Christianity, poetry, nature and photography. I have published three books of poetry – ‘Validating Ministry’, ‘Lost for Words – Decline into Dementia’ and ‘Amongst these Pilgrim People’ – all available from Amazon in paperback or Kindle format.

    Didn’t know you wrote poetry – but it’s good to know you do. Me too – we both kept that pretty quiet at RICS!

    Hope you are enjoying it, and look forward to reading more in due course.

    Best wishes

      Good to hear from you and great to see you picked up my blog. Makes you wonder who else might be a closet poet at the RICS. I think I can guess who isn’t!
      I look forward to reading some of your poetry.
      You’ll see some of mine is driven by religious themes, but let me know what you think.
      Best wishes

        I knew you had good taste when you chose Jan Garbarek at that curious meeting in Edinburgh!

        I like poetry that celebrates the English landscape and I think you’ve captured that rather beautifully. Living in the Lake District these days, it’s hard not be affected by nature, the changing seasons, and their spiritual dimension.

        I’ll send over one of my scribbles – and hope you like it.

        Best wishes
