|March’s Thinking Lunch. Thursday 5th March at Marlborough Road Methodist Church, when The Ven. Antony MacRow Wood, will be talking on
“Can credit unions play a significant part in promoting financial inclusion?”
The Ven. Antony MacRow-Wood – short biography
Antony studied Politics and Economic and Social History at York University before moving to Bristol to train as a Chartered Accountant. Once there he worked first for Deloittes and then Rolls Royce (aero-engines) and met his wife to be Dawn, singing in a church choir. They have three grown up children. He trained for ministry at Westcott House where he was fortunate enough to read Theology and Religious Studies at the University. After ordination in 1992 Antony served as a curate and team vicar in UPA parishes in Swindon and Weymouth before moving to Poole in 2004 to become Team Rector of the North Poole Ecumenical Team and then Archdeacon of Dorset in 2015. Outside of the church he has a long-standing involvement with the Credit Union movement and was National President for three years before stepping down to bring to fruition plans for a credit union for clergy. Churches’ Mutual Credit Union was duly launched 5 years ago. His main hobby is golf and he is fortunate enough to live 500 yards from Broadstone Golf Club – God is good!
