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, PrD and PhD degrees and served as a training officer of the West Midlands Synod. I continue to research, supervise, examine and present papers across academic institutions, while not affiliated to any. It is liberating to be a maverick ‘scholar and student’ at large!

From September 2008, I am Secretary for Racial Justice and Multicultural Ministry for the United Reformed Church which has now evolved into intercultural ministry. My work is situated within the Mission Department of the United Reformed Church.

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.
