It is a great pleasure to introduce myself to you all, and I look forward to meeting you when I visit Rainbow Church.
I am 63 years old, and a have been a Church of England clergyman since 1981. I was born in Cambridge and raised in a teaching family, the eldest of three. I was a very musical child, and played piano and cello, eventually joining the National Youth orchestra. My teenage years were dominated by my mother’s death in a car accident. This had a devastating effect on our family – bereavement care was fairly non-existent in the 1970s, and I was very unhappy.
