I've reached my three score years and ten, grateful for excellent health and vigour, married to Cathy, with two adult children by birth and two mixed-race children by adoption plus five grandchildren. I live in a very rural cottage about 5 miles from Norwich. Have worked in education all my life, now in Christian education after completing a ministerial training course (as a lay person) 19 years ago. I'm passionate about all followers of Jesus being equipped to minister ("serve up") God's grace, love, mercy and truth wherever they are and whatever they're doing and I want to do what I can to secure that end. I live right behind All Saints Church, Hethel, am treasurer, churchwarden and an authorised worship assistant in the diocese and I help with the church's life in and ministry to the community. A largish garden also takes (enjoyable) time and I'm (still) trying to get a golf handicap!
