Jesus showed His disciples that their lives should be one of service to God and their neighbours, and to do this by Loving God, with all your heart, mind, soul and strength and ‘Loving your neighbour as yourself’.   So, in trying to do this, I am showing my ministry in two ways:
1. To God through the churches and all they do
2. To neighbours through other community involvement
         
1. CHURCHES
  a. (1978 - 1981) Curacy in Chelsea, London
  b. (1981 - 1984) RAF Chaplain at Cosford & Chivenor
  c. (1984 - 1995) Taw Valley Team of Bishops Tawton, Newport and Tawstock
  d. (1995 - 2010) Two Rivers Team - see box above
  e. (2011 - ) Helped in three Anglican inter-regnums and other churches:
    i. Dolton benefice
    ii. Bradworthy benefice
    iii. Torrington benefice
    iv. Methodist ‘Torridge Circuit’
    v. Preached at the Baptist Churches of Torrington and Appledore
       
2. COMMUNITY
  a   School Governor at Holywell (1984-2010)
  b.   Book Relief UK - Treasurer (2006 - 2014), Chair (2014 -   )
  c.   Torrington Rotary (2011-14)

PARISH HISTORY SOCIETIES

During my years at Tawstock and High Bickington we set up two history societies.

The Tawstock group has now finished ( I am hoping to write up some notes in the next year or so), leaving the legacy of four books published:

The High Bickington group is still going (see here).

The two sets of Parish memories are from Ivon Smallridge (Tawstock) and Sid Squire (High Bickington).
