Stuckey was President of the British Methodist Conference in 2005,
Chair of the Southampton Methodist District, and a former Canon of
Salisbury Cathedral. He is married to Christine, has
up children, four grandchildren and is retired living in Christchurch,
He has ministered over the past 40 years in new town, city centre,
inner urban, council estate and rural situations. His appointment
to the staff of the Northern Federation for Training in Ministry,
Manchester in 1982 gave him the opportunity not only to be
involved in the ecumenical training of ministers but to teach,
preach and lecture on mission both in this country and overseas.
Already an author of several books and articles, visits to India,
Sri Lanka and Malaysia led to the writing of his major book on the
‘theology mission in an age of violence’.
He attempted to apply some of these insights as Superintendent of
a Methodist Circuit before becoming Chair (or in Anglican terms
-‘bishop’) of a large District in the south of England and then
President of the Methodist Church in Britain. He has lectured in
Cuba, South Africa, Jamaica, Northern Ireland and New Zealand, and
written several more books. At present
he is visiting scholar at Sarum College, Salisbury, and continues
to write, preach, teach and speak throughout the UK.
This website seeks to encourage
theological reading, thinking and discussion among ordinary church
members. It seeks to bridge the gap between academic theology and
engagement in study and renewal within the local church.
