Born near London, Tim lived his early life in the home counties and South Wales before moving to South Africa for three years.  The family returned and settled in Gloucestershire where Tim and his twin brother went to Wycliffe College.  On leaving school at 17 Tim spent some time in the USA before his degree in history at the University of Warwick.  He went straight from university to Ripon College Cuddesdon where he spent three years preparing for ordination.

Tim was ordained in Hereford in 1988 and served his curacy in the parish of St Paul’s, Tupsley where he met and married his wife Cathy, a Nurse Consultant in Palliative Care.  From there he became a Team Vicar in the Ross-on-Wye Team Ministry with responsibility for four very rural parishes.  After just over seven very happy years Tim and his family to Soham where they have spent the last fifteen years.  During his time in Soham, the parish was thrown into the media limelight with the murder of the two school girls.  He was awarded an MBE in recognition of his ‘service to the community’. He has also served on General Synod, as a rural dean, Warden of Readers and chair of the House of Clergy as well as various other diocesan committees.

Tim and Cathy have three children aged between 21 and 16. The youngest one has been at Nene Park Academy for the last three years and has been awarded a football scholarship with the under 18s at Peterborough Utd. Tim’s interests include music, cooking, liturgy and reading.
