Chris Howson grew up on a council estate near Staines. He became a social worker after serving as President of the Students Union in Bradford, where he now has responsibility for founding fresh expressions of Church for young people in and around the centre of the city. He ran a hostel for those coming out of prison whilst setting up and living in a Radical Routes Housing Co-op in the riot-afflicted area of Manningham Lane. After training for the Anglican ministry at Cranmer Hall, Durham, he worked as a curate on the Holme Wood Estate before being priested by the Bishop of Cuba and Uruguay.
