Welcome! − Services


I am an independent church consultant and trainer who has spent over 35 years promoting spiritual gifts of administration which God gives to his Church. I describe myself as a champion of 'creative organisation'.

I offer to:

  • Clergy/Pastors and other church workers
  • Lay leaders and Church Administrators
  • Boards and staffs of mission agencies...
  1. Advice through consultancy and one-to-one work
  2. Training through workshops and writing
  3. Support through web resources and networks

These pages explain these three areas, then provide examples of consultancy and one-to-one assignments and training and writing topics.

There is also a page explaining my charges. Support work is provided without charge.

Availability during the Covid-19 pandemic

I have had to reconfigure much of my work over the past few months and have a number of assignments rescheduled for this autumn. These will have priority until Christmas but talk to me if you need something before then. I am already starting to book January and February 2021 and up to the summer of next year for training events. Of course anything could happen in the coming months so all bookings have to be provisional.

Your review has been so helpful in all sorts of ways …  The report is still referred to a great deal, and with the new team building, seeds have been sown for new ideas.
