I was born and raised in Staffordshire, but now consider Nottinghamshire to be my adopted home after coming here as a student 20 years ago! After training for ordination at The Queen's Foundation in Birmingham, I served my curacy in Ollerton with Boughton before taking my current post at Mansfield St Augustine and Pleasley Hill St Barnabas in 2013.
I'm married to Matt, a headteacher, have three wonderful daughters Anna (6) and twins Grace and Thea (3), and enjoy art, baking and Indian food.
Fr James trained for the priesthood at Ripon College Cuddesdon near Oxford and was ordained in Birmingham Cathedral in 1993. He served two curacies in the Birmingham Diocese. He was appointed Team Vicar in Jarrow in the Diocese of Durham, Rector of three rural churches in Aberdeenshire for seven and a half years and for the last four years Priest-in-Charge of two churches near Huddersfield.
Fr James is married to Alice who is a Methodist Local Preacher.
