Kate has joined the Chaplaincy team at Warwick in March 2015, moving with her family from West Birmingham. She joins us having completed four years of ministry in the Diocese of Birmingham as a Pioneer Curate, where she took an active role in her local community and in exploring alternative models of church and ministry. The role of Franciscan friars within mission and the evolution of the new monastic movement within the UK's fresh expressions of churches hold a particular interest for Kate who is excited at exploring how community works and what it can look like within the setting of higher education.
Kate's first degree is in Law and Business; she also has an MSc from the Centre of Urban and Regional Studies at Birmingham University and an MA in practical theology. Her academic interests lie in social policies and the political structures with which faith communities are called to engage. Deeply committed to issues of social justice, Kate welcomes opportunities to engage with groups of all faiths and none who dream of a more equitable world.
