I have been involved in setting up and running a number of charities and voluntary groups, both faith-based and secular. In Bristol, this has included the following: Bristol Homeless Forum, Voscur (Bristol’s Council for Voluntary Services), Andrew House (Clevedon), Bristol Multi Faith Forum, FareShare South West, Crisis Centre Ministries, Christian Action Bristol, and the Voice and Influence Partnership.

I am involved in public speaking, running training courses and providing advice to voluntary and faith-based groups on a range of topics, including: Helping Vulnerable People, Mental Health, Drugs and Alcohol, Volunteer Management, Forms of Constitution, Quality Assurance, Policies and Procedures, Governance, IT, Security, Data Protection, GDPR, Domain Registration, Web Site Setup and Maintenance.

I have been involved for some years with promoting support of refugees and asylum seekers among the Bristol churches and other faith groups and helped Bristol City of Sanctuary become a CIO in 2018.

Richard McKay

(Elected 17 July 2019)

Richard is proud of his Scottish origins, but has lived and worked all his life in England. He has been a Roman Catholic priest of Clifton Diocese for 48 years, working for 49 years in very impoverished Outer Estate and Inner City parishes. For over 13 years he was RC Chaplain at HM Prison Bristol. He has long been committed to opposing all forms of oppression, injustice, poverty, racism and sexism, and has a long history of ’social engagement’

He has been involved in developing St Nicholas of Tolentino Church as a ‘Church of Sanctuary’ for over 20 years. This led him to support and work to establish and grow Bristol City of Sanctuary from the its beginnings. He is currently Co-Chair of Bristol City of Sanctuary with Caroline Beatty. Working with others he formed the independent Christian charity that is ‘Borderlands – from exclusion to belonging’ . This works alongside partner organisations such as BRR, RWB and BHN.

His parish has over 60 nationalities represented in the congregation week by week, and a major part of his and the parish’s Pastoral work is in support of those seeking safe asylum and sanctuary in our country.
