Welcome to my website, whether you are on a PC, tablet or phone. I am a church consultant and trainer who champions the ministry of creative organisation.

I seek to resource and encourage Christian leaders, managers, trustees, planners, communicators and administrators. I am passionate about helping the Church to become effective for Christ in all it seeks to be and do.

This site explains:

  • the professional services I provide to churches and mission agencies
  • the over 130 free resources you can print or download
  • the Church Administrator network that I co-ordinate (UCAN)
  • the vision that I pray for and work towards.

On this site you can contact me, come on to my resources mailing list or, for Church Administrators, join UCAN.

Within this welcome section you will also find:


Two new sets of Training Notes have been added to the Resources section in October 2016: TN95, Exit interviews for everyone, and TN96, Courtesy in church.

The latest News Update for November is now on the UCAN news page and there are fortnightly additions to the UCAN resources page which includes information on how to obtain the 'Risk toolkit' pack from the March Cutting Edge conference and its latest update at 20th September (only UCAN members can see these).

Other aspects of this site and the resources it holds are updated on an almost daily basis.
