I spent my career in urban regeneration helping local people to rebuild their neighborhood and their lives. My wife Jane and I are founding members of Contemplative Fire Sheffield with Philip and Gill Roderick.
I chaired the CF Companions Review Group and am currently trying to get CF transferred into a CIO. My considerable years of experience of boards and planning should be a help to the development of CF.
I follow a daily rhythm of meditation based on the Ignatian tradition and use a spiritual director who is also from this tradition. I was raised within the formal church structure, moved away from this for some years and it was through a lingering faith and Philip’s establishing Contemplative Fire in Sheffield that brought me to my current spiritual journey.
