Tutor in Christian Education and Spiritual Development
“I contribute to the Pastoral Studies element of the ordination course at St Augustine’s, looking at Faith and how it grows, Children’s spirituality and preparing students for their curacy in terms of self-knowledge, awareness and thinking about support mechanisms. It’s such a privilege to be a part of the formation journey with so many diverse and stimulating people of integrity.”
