My name is Nick Brindley and I was born in 1962 in Yorkshire. I retired as minister at Potters Bar and Brookmans Park United Reformed Churches in Hertfordshire. I completed my studies in the Scottish College of the URC and the University of Edinburgh, where my MTh was in Theological Ethics, in July 2012 and became minister at these churches in September of that year.
I’m married with three children and have previously been first a middle class punk rocker and then a political activist on the Trotskyist left, completed a PhD in philosophical ethics under the supervision of Gillian Rose (to whom the title of this blog is intended as a tribute) and worked in banking .
(If you’d like to know more about me this post offers a “philosophical testimony” describing my conversion to Christianity.)
