Alan Hargrave was born in a terraced house in the middle of Leeds—an area now buried under university buildings and an inner city motorway. He trained as a Chemical Engineer before working for ten years with the Anglican Church in South America, first on an economic development project with indigenous people in northern Argentina, then lecturing in Industrial Microbiology and working with the Church in Bolivia. He returned to the UK in 1987 to train as a priest. In 1994 he became the first vicar of a new parish on a council estate on the edge of Cambridge. In 2004 he became Canon Missioner of Ely Cathedral. He is the author of An Almighty Passion, illustrating the great doctrines of God with stories from ordinary life, and Living Well, a guide to finding a Rule of Life. 

Never miss a beat.
