Sam enjoys watching football and takes an interest in sport. He likes to go to the movies, theatre and concerts. His wife Paula, and now grown up children and his grandchildren are the people he loves being with most, so family occasions, home comings, and holidays are precious times for them to share together.
He came to know Christ in a personal way as a teenager through Scripture Union camps.Ballyholme Parish, Bangor is where he grew up and he has been involved with the Church Mission Society for the past 40 years. He previously served in inner city Belfast and in two rural parishes near Enniskillen and became Rector of the Cathedral in February 1999.
He is passionate about offering relevant teaching and worship, and he is deeply engaged with our parish mission link in the Diocese of Yei in South Sudan.
