Mentoring Programme 2020

Neil was part of our Mentoring Programme for 2020. He developedAmazing Grace as part of the programme:

Andy is the first non-white priest in a small Scottish church. After the funeral of his father, Peter, he is haunted by questions about his past and future. But the arrival of Mary, seeking confession, forces him to reexamine his faith. Is it possible to fit in with society's expectations, without cutting off a part of yourself? And who has earned the right to judge?

Neil was mentored by Lewis Hetherington.
