Fr Max offers welfare support to members of the College of all beliefs and backgrounds. He is also responsible for the life of the Chapel. The Chaplain’s office is Room 2901 just above the Porters’ Lodge and Fr Max is always happy for people to drop by for a chat.

Fr Max grew up in Northumberland before studying Classics at Oxford, followed by ministry at St John’s College, Cambridge and a range of Parishes. Before coming to Keble he was Precentor of Canterbury Cathedral, where he founded and led ‘Sacred Space,’ offering hospitality, pastoral care, friendship, and worship to local students and young adults.

Alongside his priestly ministry, Fr Max has held a number of teaching posts at the Universities of Cambridge and Kent, where he taught Greek, Hebrew, Latin, and Classical and Biblical Literature. His research interests are in the Jewish-Greek Literature of the Hellenistic period.
