Joe joined the Trust as Church of England and Free Church Christian Chaplain at the beginning of May 2013.

He comes from a science background but also has experience of working in the housing and youth and community sectors. Following his ministry training, he has spent the last 18 years as a parish-based church leader.

“I love working with people and instinctively look for ways to care and support others. I hope to be a good reflection of the goodness, and unconditional love of the Church.

“I want to be a chaplain to the whole of the hospital community so I am always looking to build supporting relationships with staff, carers and family members as well as with patients. I am a warm and friendly person, and ready to talk – just stop me if you need to chat.”
