From 9th September 2015 I will become the part time Priest-in-Charge of St Luke's Church in Peckham South London, where we hope to set up a New Monastic Community, and will also become the Woolwich Episcopal Area Parish Mission Enabler in the Diocese of Southwark.

I was until recently a founding participant and ordained missioner to Moot, a New Monastic and spiritual community in the City of London, UK.

I have a background in explorative and missional christian communities seeking to be healthy expressions of church, communities committed to being followers of the way of Jesus fit for the 21st century.

I have authored a number of books. In my writing and speaking I hope to encourage others to take risks with their dreams, see here for more info. I am interested in the creative edges of contemporary culture, church, the arts, spirituality, sacramentality, mission and a recovery of a healthy understanding of our humanity.

I am actively involved in developing missional communities in the Church of England and beyond. I am currently involved in the discernment of pioneer ministers, the fresh expressions initiative in the UK and the development of new monastic acknowledged religious communities.
