Mike grew up in West London and became a Christian through a school Christian Union Camp at the age of 13. From school he joined the Ministry of Defence and worked in London Headquarters for 22 years before receiving the call to ministry. He trained at Oakhill Theological College on the North Thames Ministerial Course and was ordained at St Paul’s Cathedral in 1999. He served his 4 year curacy at St Giles Ickenham before taking up his current post in Penn and Tylers Green in July 2003. For recreation he sails, plays guitar and runs around the parish in a ‘Smart’ two seater sports car (having given up his beloved motorbike!) He takes theology books on holiday with him and enjoys books on psychology (so what does that tell us about him!). He is married with 3 grown up children.
