Work & Interests

I am a minister of the United Reformed Church and until August 2008 served as a member of the academic staff at Queen’s Foundation for Ecumenical Theological Education. At Queen’s, I taught Ecumenical Studies; Interfaith Studies; Ministry in Intercultural Contexts; and Modern Theologians, among other subjects. I have also supervised students for MA, MPhil, ThD and PhD degrees and served as a training officer of the West Midlands Synod. I am presently Adjunct Tutor  at Westminster College, Cambridge.

From September 2008, I am Secretary for Racial Justice and Intercultural Ministry for the United Reformed Church which has now evolved into intercultural ministry. The brief also includes opportunities to participate in the Resource Centres for Learning of the United Reformed Church to develop theological education (for ministers and lay members) with particular reference to intercultural ministry and Black and Asian theologies. I am presently one of moderators of the General Assembly of the United Reformed Church (2012-2014).

I am on the editorial board of Black Theology: An International Journal. I am also a Trustee and vice-convenor of Grassroots, a community based interfaith organisation.

Besides my involvement in theological education and ministerial formation, I am also a writer of short stories and a story-teller. Among my many projects is that of re-claiming Anancy or Anansi, the Caribbean patron saint, as a conversation partner in re-telling biblical stories and theological ideas.

My interest in things Caribbean, including Caribbean theology and Studies resulted in my involvement in the Society for Caribbean Studies in the UK. I served on the SCS committee until June 2009.
