a brief introduction... The Vicar was ordained in 1989, after training at St.Michael’s College, Llandaff. He served a curacy in the Parish of Clydach-on-Tawe in the Swansea Valley. In 1993 he moved to the Deanery of Swansea to take up the post as Vicar of St.Thomas and Kilvey, on the eastside of the city. During this period, he was also Honorary Port Chaplain for the Mission to Seafarers in the Port of Swansea. In July 2000 he was Inducted as Vicar of the Parish of Tycoch. Phillip is also the part time chaplain at Swansea’s Singleton Hospital, a large general hospital on the sea front at Swansea Bay. At the start of 2012, Phillip was invited by Bishop John to become Area Dean of the then Deanery of Clyne, with overall responsibility for clergy and people of the six parishes of Sketty, Tycoch, Killay, Oystermouth, Llwynderw and Newton. In 2016 the former system of x11 Deaneries in the Diocese of Swansea & Brecon changed to four Deaneries, Clyne being subsumed into the new Greater Gower Deanery, so Vicar ceased in his role as Area Dean. In July 2015 Phillip was invited by Bishop John to act as Surrogate one of only four clerics in the Diocese authorised to issue Common Licences to married couples in certain circumstances. Phillip was Inducted as Vicar of Killay on 28 th January 2016, thus being responsible for two thirds of the parishes in the newly created Clyne Trinity Ministry Area. The Vicarages of both Killay and Tycoch were then sold, and a new Vicarage purchased by the Diocesan Parsonage Board in Hendrefoilan Park, where the Vicar can now be found. In March of 2017 Phillip was made an Honorary Canon of Brecon Cathedral. Canon Phillip is married to Sian, they have two sons, Simon and Andrew, and three grand-children Dylan, Eleri and Joey. Prior to ordination Phillip worked as a professional photographer, for a period he was a Police Photographer with the South Wales Constabulary, prior to this he worked as a Freelance Photographer, specialising in Press Photography.
