He was born on 30 September 1934 and educated at St Albans School and Keble College, Oxford. He was ordained in 1961 [2] and his first post was as a curate at St Ebbe's Church, Oxford[3] after which he became a missionary in South America. He became the Archdeacon of Salta in 1969 before being ordained to the episcopate four years later as Bishop of Northern Argentina.[4] After seven years he returned to England firstly as Rector of Kirkheaton [5] and then Secretary of the Partnership for World Mission[6] where he remained until 1988 when he was appointed Bishop of Southwell, a post he held for 11 years. In retirement he continues to serve as an assistant bishop in the Diocese of Gloucester.
