You are a disreputable priest; but only a disreputable priest can help me.’

These words spoken to Ian Corbett early on in his ministry by a university student were to echo through the years that followed. Years that took him into pioneering missionary ministry with people on the edges of their societies in the UK, Ireland, South Africa and North America.

As a gay Anglican priest struggling with ‘coming out’ Ian has been well place to support people who are different – whether in sexuality or ethnicity – from the prevailing culture around them.
