Biography

Nat brings over 15 years of ministry experience in the Church of England and the Anglican Church of Australia in both Parish and Hospital Chaplaincy, with a special interest in helping people discover their God given gifts and enabling their service in the church and world.

Nat has experience of ministering within Anglo-Catholic, Evangelical and Charismatic Anglican Churches and is passionate about sharing Biblical and Theological insights to help the church live according to Jesus’ commands and in the power of the Holy Spirit.

This interest led Nat to undertake research with the Reconciliation Ministry Team at Coventry Cathedral in 2010, undertaking an analysis and critique of the discipleshire material known as the Common Discipline (’67,’82,’83), The Coventry Discipline (’90) and The Coventry Way (’07-’10).

Nat’s interest in reconciliation as an integral outworking of God’s mission led Nat to become an Anglican Pacifist Fellowship (APF) Member in 2005 and was Chair of the APF from 2012-2017.

These interests combined to inform his MA dissertation topic, “Is Jesus’ subversion of the messianic military expectations a sufficient basis for a normative Christian non-violent ethic?”

Nat is the Associate Minister of St Bart’s, Norwood, part of the Grace Anglican Network.

He is married to Ruth and they have two daughters, Esther and Martha.

Nat enjoys photography and lifting weights and only supports footballing ‘royalty’ – Norwood FC, Hawthorn FC and Liverpool FC!
