Mark has lived and worshipped in the parish for 16 years, having moved here from Handsworth (Birmingham) with his wife Deb and their children, Hannah and Tim. He has been described as a “quintessentially broad Anglican”, which he is quite happy to embrace. He is a lawyer who advises people and organisations on how to work together across the public, private and civil society sectors. He is particularly known for his contribution to embedding social value and community benefits in public procurement. He enjoys world music, walking, real ale, supporting Ipswich Town, incense in church and puns.
