Hi, I'm Chris and I'm from Newcastle upon Tyne. I just graduated from a BA in Fine Art at Newcastle University, and now I'm at St Matthew's to explore ministry in the Church of England.
At home I went to St James and St Basil's, Fenham, and my priest there gave me a much needed push to explore my vocation. I'm not used to the Anglo-Catholic ways of doing things, but I'm definitely getting an education at St Matthew's! More importantly though I'm learning a lot about myself and God, as well as getting to grips with living in London (which I now love!)
I see art as a big part of my vocation and my work focuses on religion and church. So if I'm not running around the church doing jobs then I'm probably in the church tower, where I've got a studio space (and if you're interested in what I do then have a look at my website here).
My other big passion is traveling and recently I lived in Krakow for half a year. So if you ever went to get me talking, then ask me about that and I'll waffle on for hours.
