In 1986 I became the founder Trustee at the Minstead Training Trust (formerly Minstead Training Project). I am a retired solicitor having combined self-supporting ordained ministry in the C of E with a career in ‘crime’ for many years. Since my retirement I have continued to be a member of the team ministry in Winchester.

I live in Winchester with my wife Lorna, who is a college nurse. Having played an active part in founding the Minstead Training Trust, I continue to appear at the premises several days a week, describing it as an addiction which is hard to break.
