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 140 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:


The UK Church Administrator Network (UCAN) have appointed to the new part-time home-working post of Administrator & Network Co-ordinator. See the Administrators page.

The Training Notes page has new materials on working with a No. 2 and people who visit the church office. These were uploaded in August.

You can listen to the 2017 Cutting Edge conference main talks on the UCAN recordings page. The UCAN resources page (restricted to Church Administrators who are UCAN members) has major new items including many back-up resources from the conference and the new 2017 version of the 'Risk Toolkit' pack.

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