As you can see, Alan is a medic, healing the sick; and a military man: intent on restoring order, when it is eroded or absent. We pray that Alan's gifts and experiences will help us all in OCAC to feed the hungry, heal the sick, and bring God's word to those in need.

Alan leads prayer groups and assists local churches in their assessment of candidates for serving. He was ordained to the priesthood by Bishop Adrian at the OCAC Auxiliary Synod in Exeter, and serves in Gloucestershire.
