Course Leader

Director of Church Army’s Research Unit since 2017, Tim formerly led the Church of England’s ministry research. He has edited and contributed to a number of books, including Developing Faithful Ministries and Moving on in Ministry. A recurrent theme of his work is the importance of context, especially voices of the marginal.

This one of two Bishop’s Days held at Portsmouth Cathedral in 2019. The other is on Tuesday 24th September.

“I welcome all in active ministry as Readers and Clergy to these days of meeting for learning and fellowship. We take time together to pause for listening, sharing and reflecting on how we fashion our lives, and the lives of our congregations, to proclaim the Gospel, grow the Church, and build the Kingdom.” Bishop Christopher
