I am the vicar of Mixenden and Illingworth in North Halifax. I am a guitarist and musician and with my wife Ruth we write music and songs together. Our main passion is Rock Music and we play in a couple of bands. Silverthorn play in the pubs, clubs and bike rallies and Metanoia play mainly in churches.
For many years we have been involved with Alt:Worship. Rock Mass is currently our main focus at Holy Nativity where I am vicar. At Rock Mass we use musical settings that we have written and arranged for Metanoia at the Eucharist. With Metanoia, we have led services in Minsters, Cathedrals and festivals such as Greenbelt. I am part of the leadership at Sanctum, organise the worship for On Fire, and a member of the Liturgical Commission.
Here you will find our music, ideas for Alt:Worship, bits of theology and occasional humour.
