Meet our Minister
Rev. Dr. Chris Dowd
was raised in the Australian outback on a cattle station. He subsequently studied at Macquarie University and the University of New South Wales gaining a bachelors and master’s degree and worked in further education.
He moved over to the United Kingdom over 20 years ago and worked for many years as a self-employed management consultant before deciding to throw it all in and plant a church and study theology. He subsequently worked as a chaplain at Aston University for the United Reformed Church (URC).
In 2014 he formally joined the URC as an ordinand and completed his doctorate in Contextual Theology at Birmingham University before being called to the Hull Team. His passion is to try to make the church relevant and a place of welcome for all.
He lives with his partner of many years, Will, their dogs Oscar and Scarlett and three chickens named after biblical ladies of dubious reputations.
