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 Honorary Research Associate at Westminster College, Cambridge and Honorary lecturer at the University of Birmingham.
From September 2008, I have commenced working as 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 also a reviews editor of Black Theology: An International Journal. Along with colleagues Anthony Reddie, Mukti Barton and Carol Troupe, I continue to participate in the Black theology and postcolonial discourses in the UK.
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.
