Tim Daykin

When Tim Daykin was sent home early from Sunday School for being naughty he never thought he would end up as a Church of England vicar - or presenting Sunday morning programmes for BBC Radio Solent!

Inspirational music coupled with lively conversation and guests from the faith communities provide a unique mix to start a special day.

Tim rounds up the week's religious news, meets people of faith and delves into the moral and ethical questions of the day.

As well as producing and presenting religious programmes for BBC Radio Solent, Scunthorpe-born Tim is a vicar in central Southampton.

After studying chemistry at the University of London's Royal Holloway College in the early 1970s, Tim went on to train as a minister in Durham and then spent several years as a part time church history research student at King's College London.

Married to Ruth since 1975, Tim believes religion is not just about musty churches and misery but should reflect life in all its fullness.

After several years contributing Morning Thoughts on the Julian Clegg Breakfast Show, being "rent-a-gob" on religious issues (that's what he calls it), the bosses asked him to take over the regular Sunday morning programme.

Becoming a grandfather gave Tim the perfect opportunity to build miniature railways in his garden!
