Jim in his own words:-
I am originally from Scotland. Most of my younger years were spent on a small island called Cumbrae in the Firth of Clyde. I moved to Bristol in 1980 where I met my wife Pam. Pam’s parents lived in St Peter’s Avenue in Caversham. We married in St Peter’s church in 1984. We have lived in a number of places and countries over the years but the last 10 have been spent in Reading in Caversham and Emmer Green. My church background is quite varied: Christian Brethren, Baptist and now Anglican. Pam and I have been coming to St Barnabas for less than a year having previously worshipped at Caversham Evangelical Church.
I recently retired after 32 years in the Financial Services industry, mainly in I.T. and Business Analysis.
My main interests are running, cycling and playing guitar.
For the past 6 months I have had the privilege of leading the weekly Bible Study Group which I enjoy immensely.
