Monthly Reflections

  • Are you paying attention?

    December 2016

    Noooooooooooo…oh! What? Really?! Him? You couldn’t predict the result, the final outcome. (No. I’m not referring to the US Presidential election!) But it’s all there, foretold in scripture, The Arrival, the long anticipated Coming. Who would have thought… that God would choose the least likeliest of people, an ordinary teenager, virgin, unmarried, to give birth […]

    Leading Lights

    November 2016

    Picture the scene…  a 76 year old Sikh grandmother lying in a hospital bed.   She doesn’t speak English and is illiterate.   Through interpretation and translation, she is told that she has to have an emergency operation for a quadruple bypass, or she will die…   Interestingly, she is peaceful and calm when she […]

  • Ten Myths About Domestic Abuse You Didn’t Know You Believed: Part 2

    October 2016

    Abuse is the choice of a person, usually a man statistically (but not exclusively), to undermine the personhood of his partner, girlfriend, wife.[1]  This may include putting her down and devaluing her, isolating and controlling her, making her feel she is going mad, scaring and intimidating her, using her children against her, lying to her […]

    Ten Myths About Domestic Abuse You Didn’t Know You Believed: Part 1

    September 2016

    Most Christians agree that abuse [1] is wrong. Don’t we? Rarely (it does happen) does anyone decree, at least blatantly, that a person should endure abuse by their partner, and if they do, most of us look reasonably horrified at the suggestion. The majority of Christians agree that abuse should not happen. And yet, abuse […]

  • Dear Egalitarian Man With A Platform

    August 2016

    Dear Egalitarian Man With A Platform, I value your commitment to women’s full participation in the body of Christ. But your egalitarian values seem hollow when you stand on a platform full of men. They seem hollow when there are no women (or maybe a token woman) speaking beside you. It’s great that you talk […]

    Masculinities, Femininities, and Socialisation

    July 2016

    A couple of years ago I sat in a café with a man talking about masculinities.  One of the things he said has stuck with me.  “But what do you say to a 6 year old boy who asks, ‘Mummy what does it mean to be a boy?’”  At the time I had a 6 […]

  • What’s Domestic Abuse Got To Do With Theology?

    June 2016

    Over the last few years, I’ve met a lot of people who have begun thinking about biblical equality—either as a result of academic study or through their own experience with the disadvantages women face in the church and world. I am so grateful to the many egalitarian theologians who have painstakingly searched through the original […]

    Don’t stop there..  Keep on going!!

    May 2016

    Birthdays are significant milestones… loved by some, dreaded by others!  The church also celebrates its birthday at Pentecost.  It’s a bit of a movable feast, following on 50 days after Easter Sunday but it marks the ‘official’ birth of the church.  Acts 2: 1- 4: When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one […]

What you’re saying

  • This event was a great intro for the new attendees and a blessing to all!

    General Testimonial

  • The response from your visit has been great! The feedback from the women has been really positive.

    Women’s group leader

    General Testimonial

  • It was great to have the confidential space to talk about me! My confidence has grown and I am taking the steps to achieve my immediate to long term goals and aspirations.

    Senior leader, Private

    Mentoring

  • I really appreciated the way in which the equality of men and women together has been emphasised, this is lacking in most women based stuff I’ve looked at or been a part of. Maybe men would benefit from some of the teaching too?

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership

  • Brilliant! I was unsure how useful coaching would be at this stage of my career. The process has been very challenging but I am now making a more positive contribution to my team and the wider organisation in my leadership role.

    Director, Private

    Coaching

  • Great conference, very diverse

    General Testimonial

  • I had an awesome day. Thanks for your time, effort and organisation

    General Testimonial

  • You are a voice of wisdom for this generation and certainly to me, you have not only given advice but you have also given me the tools.

    Businessman and Church Elder

    General Testimonial

  • Thank you for a very well organised event

    General Testimonial

  • Just days after the programme ended I was selected for a change management project role in a global organisation. The clarity I’d gained through coaching to make this choice was essential and I am now steps closer to my true vocation. Thanks again.

    Manager, Charity

    Coaching

  • The shared days have definitely played a part in the increased sense of emotional health and well-being I have experienced over the last 18 months – which have been a very significant time for me.

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership

  • I feel much more ambitious for myself in terms of what I can achieve both on a personal and professional level. I am now much more aware of my own future and personal vision.

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership

  • Every time we meet I come away challenged and encouraged.

    Church leadership team member

    General Testimonial

  • Thank you it has been really excellent including lovely food!

    General Testimonial

    Associate Director, Public

    Coaching

  • I just wanted to say how much I appreciated your ministry at the recent ministers’ conference… a number of the things you said really helped to crystallise some things I believe God has been saying to me.

    Regional leaders’ conference co-ordinator

    General Testimonial

  • Awesome day – thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of it

    General Testimonial

  • Coaching provided a non-judgemental space for me to reflect on our Church vision and strategic objectives. It also had a hugely positive impact on the way I lead and relate to others.

    Senior Minister, Church

    Coaching

  • I have been made to feel very welcome on the day

    General Testimonial

  • The whole day has truly challenged me. I am at a level where I need to step up but I was trying to step down. Thank you all for sharing.  More please!
