James Roberts joined Pusey House in September 2016. James was born and raised in rural Herefordshire but, before coming to Pusey, was working in Belgium as a pastoral assistant to the Anglican chaplaincy in Ghent. This followed his studies at the University of St Andrews, where he read theology and developed an interest in modern theology. James is exploring vocation in the Church of England and he is looking forward to immersing himself in the liturgical tradition of Pusey House over the coming year.
