Jacob’s journey to Christ Church started in 2013 when he was encouraged to explore ordination in the Church of England. Later that year he moved to Hackney and began working in a church in order to test his growing sense of vocation. In the autumn of 2014 Jacob commenced his training for ordination at Ridley Hall College, Cambridge.
Jacob grew up in the Midlands and before he sought ordination he first read philosophy at university and as a graduate worked in the property sector for a family-run business.
Jacob and Zippy got married in the summer of 2015. He loves sport, cooking and being out in the countryside. Zippy loves art, catching up with friends and the fact that Jacob likes to cook for her! During Jacob’s time at Ridley he thoroughly enjoyed studying The Reformation and diligently trained for and won the college croquet tournament!
