I am a Methodist Minister and a part time chaplain to the Grosvenor Casino Luton. My role finds me in the gaming areas and behind the scenes, chatting to many of the 160 staff and providing a ‘listening ear’ when needed. The Rank Organisation funded this chaplaincy as a pilot at its Luton casino for over four years, with the aim of giving staff access to someone completely independent who can act as a sounding board for any personal or work-related issues that may be troubling them. I have been there since 2009, made possible with recent funding from the Methodist Church.
As well as being a Casino Chaplain I am part time Training Coordinator for the South Beds Methodist Circuit, have pastoral oversight at the Wigmore Church and assess Business Administration apprentices for Luton Adult Learning.
In my spare time I love to be creative, especially making clothes, and am attempting to launch an ethical clothing line, including interesting clerical shirts!
