Revd Dr Richard Wyld
After teaching for a couple of years with the Portsmouth Pathway, then working as interim director, Richard took on the role of Portsmouth Pathway Cuddesdon director in May 2020. He teaches on a range of courses and areas of ministry, though his main interest is with biblical studies, hermeneutics, and especially the New Testament. He trained for ordained ministry at Cranmer Hall, and then paused ordination to study for a PhD in Durham, looking at Christian hope as a framework for thinking about what is happening when we read scripture. He was ordained in 2013, served his title in and around Sherborne in Dorset, and was chaplain to the Bishop of Portsmouth from late 2017-2020.
Richard enjoys finding ways to make scripture and theology as accessible as possible to all, and believes that everyone has a voice in the enterprise. He lives with two rescue dogs, enjoys walking and painting, and is approximately one half of post-hardcore talk music duo, 'Rails, Witnesses'.
