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. That especially applies in the ongoing Covid pandemic as we need, on a daily basis at present, to reassess the way we go about serving our Lord and his world.

This site explains:

  • the professional services I provide to churches and mission agencies
  • the over 200 free resources on creative church organisation you can print or download - this will be the section that most people will want to aim for
  • the network that I recommend all Church Administrators join (UCAN)
  • the vision that I pray for and work towards.

On this site you can contact me or come on to my resources mailing list.

Within this welcome section you will also find:


Uploaded in June 2022: two new Training Notes: TN139, Church workers in teams, and TN140, A checklist for a business plan. Find these on the Training Notes index page. These bring the total number of resources on the site to over 200 for the first time.

Come on to my Resources e-letter list to be told as soon as new items are added to the Resources section of this website.

For latest developments, see the News page.

For a note on my current availability see the final paragraph on the Services page. Other aspects of this site and the resources it holds are updated every few days.
