Clare Herbert

"Seeing how we translate theology into practice is of vital importance in training ministers. It is not enough to know – we need to know how to live it out in ministry and mission."

Clare joined the staff team in September 2013, and is the Tutor for Practical Theology and Pastoral Care.

Clare has a Masters Degree in Pastoral Theology from Edinburgh University and has recently completed a doctorate in the hermeneutics of Practical Theology with Anglia Ruskin University and the Cambridge Theology Federation.

A former childcare social worker, Clare was pastoral care advisor in the Diocese of London before becoming the Rector of St Anne’s Soho.

In her spare time Clare swims and sails a dinghy in Chichester Harbour.


Clare has contributed chapters for:

  • ‘Spirituality in the City’
  • The Times Best Sermons books 1 & 5
  • ‘What Will Women Priests Mean?’
