The purpose of this short biography is to describe one man's role as a pioneer (up to 1980) in tackling issues of how the Anglican Church could be more relevant and to break down the barriers of distrust and fear between other denominations, nations and faiths. His career included a humble background between the two World Wars, his ambition and struggle to become a priest when the church was much more hierarchical than it is now, and his warmth and enthusiasm which drew people from all walks of life to his side. By founding a community at two coastal sites he enabled many from all faiths and none to explore Christianity and to recover their faith in humanity and a zest for life through visiting and experiencing a stay in an open, caring and accepting community, but always with the intention of taking this experience back to their everyday lives. On becoming a priest in the City of London he became involved with a wide range of establishment figures in the arts, sciences and medicine. Thirty-five years since his death the relevance of his open minded care for human beings rather than rules and structures, and his love of life despite a long struggle with heart disease, remain inspirational.
