Originally from Norfolk, Andy was ordained in 1992 and worked in parochial roles in Telford and Chesterfield before becoming Director Mission & Ministry in Derby Diocese; four years ago he became Archdeacon of the East Riding in York Diocese. In Derby he led a review which paved the way to significant deanery changes but left before they happened! In York this was spotted on the CV and within a couple of months of arriving he had been asked to lead a similar process. The context is very different and so are the proposals but this time he is delighting in being present to see what actually happens!
Married with two adult children, when Andy is not archdeaconing he enjoys walking up hills and watching his beloved Norwich City . . . both of which can be very hard work!
