Alan is a retired minister who lives in Wark and has served the Church for many years. He writes:
After thirty years in the active ministry I retired back to the county of my birth to live in Wark. I am married to Christine and we have three children and five grandchildren. After graduation I worked for 10 years as a teacher. Over the years I have been involved with churches both large and small; also I have been actively involved with property matters including some work with the Old Rectory at Epworth. However my greatest fulfilment comes from preaching.
