Nathan trained for the priesthood at St Stephen’s House, Oxford. He was ordained in Durham Cathedral in 2006 and served his curacy in Hartlepool, afterwards becoming incumbent of a church in inner-City Birmingham. He was then Rector of three rural congregations in Oxfordshire, each with a beautiful 12th century church, before coming to Bangor Diocese as University Chaplain in 2018.

‘North Wales had always played a part in my childhood, church camps and holidays being a highlight, so it was exciting to rediscover the place as an adult. Before long, after visiting Snowdonia, it became harder and harder to leave, so we decided to stay.’ The deep-rooted sense of the sacred and holy is embedded within the people of North Wales. I want to be part of that.'

In addition to his role at Bangor University, Nathan is responsible for the Cathedral Foodbank and opened a community café in 2019 with a team of dedicated volunteers. He remains passionate about social justice and mission and holds an MA in Pastoral Studies on Eucharistic Theology and outreach.

Nathan has far too many animals including dogs, cats and smaller furry creatures, enjoys walking, gardening, antiques and visiting galleries and museums when time allows.
