This site describes some of my activities as the Church of England’s Bishop of Kingston, and offers some of my reflections and writing, in the hope that they will be of interest and use to others in their journey of life and faith.
In my work I have taken seriously the challenges of
– scientific perspectives on reality and whether they are compatible with faith in God
– the diversity of religions and how they relate to one another
– issues of justice, poverty and ecology
