Ivan has been with St James’s since 2015 drawn by its vibrancy and far-reaching Christian message of transformation and hope. He was ordained in the Canterbury Diocese, following the voice of the one who says “You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you” (John 15.16).
He is a lecturer in Theology at Canterbury Christ Church University, where he enjoys the challenges of leading students to lives of creativity and compassion. An early career in theatre in California led him to theological study in Canada, France, and Scotland. He enjoys cycling, cooking, and the cinema.
