I was ordained in the Church of England in 2008 and served as Curate and then Priest with Permission to Officiate 4 years in a church in Balham, south west London, where I had been an active member since 1993. Previously since 1972, I had been a leader in an independent church where I was also Sunday School Superintendent and  was involved, with my wife,  in the leadership of the teenage work of the church.

I graduated as a pharmacist in 1969 and spent all my working life as a university teacher and research scientist in the Pharmacy Dept, King’s College London, receiving a personal chair in 1999.  I led one of the largest research groups in the UK in my subject, and this group was very multi-national.  I also served and held office on a number of national and international committees and  travelled extensively to give lectures and advise on research projects, particularly in developing countries.
