Father James Cassidy is Ecumenical Officer for the Catholic Diocese of Northampton. He was born in Liverpool, and attended the same school as Archbishop Vincent Nicholls – although a few years after him. He studied for the Catholic priesthood in England and in Rome, where he did post-graduate theological studies. His doctorate was written on membership of the Church in Local Ecumenical Partnerships. He has done research into liturgy, for which he was awarded an MPhil degree, and he also has degrees in Canon Law from Leuven and Rome.
Currently he is parish priest of Our Lady of Lourdes and St Augustine’s parishes in Milton Keynes, which also includes being responsible for Christ the Cornerstone in Central Milton Keynes. These are urban, lively parishes with a very mixed congregation: over forty nationalities are represented in them.
In his spare time he is also a regular broadcaster on Premier Christian Radio. Currently he presents a ‘Catholic Commentary’ – a review of the Catholic press. When he was on sabbatical in Rome he was Premier’s ‘Vatican Correspondent’ and used a link between Vatican Radio and Premier Christian Radio to talk to the listeners about life in Rome and the Vatican.

As part of his training with the Canons Regular, he spent time in Austria and Italy, as well as completing his studies for the priesthood at the Missionary Institute London and at Heythrop College. Father Allan then went on to Lampeter to study for the MA in Celtic Christianity, thus bringing his Celtic and his theological studies together.

Tim is the Anglican Area Dean of Milton Keynes and spends roughly a quarter of his time at Christ the Cornerstone. He has been in and out of Milton Keynes since 1976, so knows the area reasonably well. He has worked for USPG, Barclays Bank, and the National Motor Museum – where he was a train driver.
He studied at Aberdeen University, Westott House Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin University. He has a degree in Hebrew and Semitic Languages and could read at least six ancient languages at one point – but is very rusty now!
He has written all-age worship material for Scripture Union and a book about collaborative ministry. He paints, runs and plays the guitar (and ukelele). He is particularly interested in collaborative ministry, emerging church and social media. He is currently combining these interests by researching churches as social networks.
Tim is married to Isla and they have two children.
