More about the Rector

Father David comes to the Loggerheads Benefice from Handsworth in Birmingham via Cornwall where he was responsible for three coastal parishes. He is no stranger to rural ministry having been a country parson serving seven churches in Peterborough Diocese. He trained for ministry at Westcott House, Cambridge, and completed his curacy at St Mary’s Abbey, Nuneaton. Father David, who is 62, was born in Windsor, studied at Liverpool for his first degree and worked as a Social Worker in London before ordination. He continued to study part-time and completed a Master’s Degree at Warwick University followed by a Doctorate at Bradford. Father David is married to Linda, who is also a priest, but they don’t work together as the couple say they want to stay married. When they are not working, the Isiorhos can be found in front of the fire enjoying a glass of wine and animated conversation. They are owned by a cat called Sir Micky Mango Socrates (no need to curtsey or bow).
