Christopher Ash is a full-time preacher, teacher, and writer. After working in the telecommunications industry and as a teacher of maths, Christopher studied theology at Oxford, where he was awarded the Denyer and Johnson prize. He was ordained and served as an Assistant Minister in St.Andrew the Great in Cambridge, before leading a church plant to All Saints, Little Shelford, in 1997. In 2004 he and Carolyn moved to London where Christopher served as Director of the Proclamation Trust’s Cornhill Training Course until July 2015.
Christopher’s wife Carolyn serves on the Board of London City Mission and previously lead the teams that run three annual Proclamation Trust conferences for wives of pastors. She and Christopher have been entrusted with three sons and a daughter (all now grown up) and seven grandchildren. They belong to St.Andrew the Great church, where Christopher is part of the preaching team.
As Writer-in-Residence, Christopher hopes to encourage younger scholars to grow in faithful loving loyalty to Jesus, and to use their gifts to serve the church of Christ. Christopher’s major writing project is a commentary on reading, preaching, and praying the Psalms in Christ.
