Alec was raised in a Christian family and was baptised at 16. He has continued to follow Jesus since then. He has served in several churches in a variety of roles alongside his wife Ali. His desire is to see all reach a full maturity and fulfilment in their relationship with God, to see the church grow in faith and mission. He works as a maths tutor at a college in Oxford. To relax he likes to spend time with his family, read Christian, science fiction and fantasy books, or spend time walking -preferably in the Lake District.
