I am a priest working for the Church of England as vicar of Mixenden and Illingworth in North Halifax. With my wife Ruth we write music and song and recording together. Our main passion of course is Rock Music and we play in a couple of bands, Silverthorn and Metanoia.
For many years we have been involved with Alt:Worship. Since ordination, we have been organising The Rock Mass at Holy Nativity where I am vicar. At those services, Metanoia use musical settings we have written for the Eucharist. The Rock Mass with Metanoia have led services at Minsters, Cathedrals and Greenbelt. Through my history in the Alt:Worship scene, I am now involved with Sanctum and a trustee of Transcendence Trust.
After 15 years my online presence was scattered across different platforms so I decided to bring it all together under my own name. Here you will find our music, ideas for Alt:Worship, bits of theology and occasional humour.
The views represented in my blog do not represent the official views of the Church of England. This is not the last word on any topic, it is a word on it. Previously, I published under the name changingworship, which still lives on as the username for some of my social media.
