He was educated at Christ Church, Oxford. After a period of study at Cranmer Hall he was ordained in 1984. His career began with a curacy at Christ Church, Summerfield in Birmingham, after which he was Vicar of Aston and finally (before his elevation to the Episcopate) Vicar of Holy Trinity, Coventry.
He is on the Governing Council of the True Freedom Trust, which encourages gay men and lesbians not to have gay or lesbian relationships, believing that God allows people to have gay feelings because "we are living in a fallen world".
He was one of the bishops selected to be a member of the Church of England working group on human sexuality which in 2013 produced the Pilling Report. However, he did not agree with the others and wrote a dissenting statement and an appendix, which constitute a quarter of the published report.
