*We are privileged to have Paul lead us for this event. He writes:

I am Jewish, from north London, and in my early years I was an atheist.  Much to my surprise, and that of my family, I became a Christian, and after leaving school I studied Theology at St John’s College, Nottingham.  In 1980, I was ordained and served in parishes in Billericay and Luton before being appointed Adviser in Evangelism for Southwell Diocese in 1989.  In 2002 I left Anglican ministry and worked as Europe Director for Christian Associates, an international organisation planting contemporary and innovative churches in capital cities in Europe.

In 2009 I was appointed Vicar of St. Peter’s in the City, in the centre of Derby. During my time there, and much to my surprise, I led a movement of voluntary workplace chaplaincy. I inherited 12 chaplains, and this grew, slowly at first and then with some momentum, until in 2020 there were more than 150 chaplains (over 80% lay) serving in 15 workplace sectors and in 15 towns around Derbyshire.  

I am now retired and living with my family in Guildford.
