As Canon Precentor, Jack is responsible for re-imagining this historic role in a manner that seeks to resource, in substantive new ways, the wider Diocese in its ministry and mission from the Cathedral. He also heads up the Cathedral’s ministry to children, young people, their families and caregivers and to schools.
Working with others from across the Diocese, particularly with the Department for Apostolic Life, Jack plays a crucial ongoing role in enabling the Cathedral to help the whole people of God to grow in the knowledge and love of God, in evangelistic witness, in transforming the unjust structures of society and in the collective striving to safeguard the integrity of creation.
Before ordination Jack worked for an Investment Bank. He joined the Diocese of Chichester as a part-time Parish Development Officer and Bishop’s Adviser for Vocations. He has previously served in two parishes in East London and as a Chaplain and Head of Welfare in an Oxford College. He served his title in West London. Jack is passionate about lay leadership, clergy wellbeing, congregation growth, children and young people’s ministry and mission and evangelism.
