Tom Allen:
Born and educated in rural Shropshire, after reading Theology at Hull University, I have spent the past 30 years in full time ministry in the UK focusing on mission through youth work, music and the arts, and pioneering new forms of Church.

Geographically this has taken me from East and South West London, via Leeds, Lancashire, Yorkshire and now to Scotland.

For the last 10 years this has been as Anglican priest, and I am currently working as Chaplain to the Scottish Ports forging a partnership between the mission agency Mission to Seafarers and the Scottish Episcopal Church
