Carolyn is the Course Leader for our online course on children’s ministry in a time of pandemic and for our Certificate in Children’s Ministry, both part of our Short Course programme.
Carolyn is the Children and Youth Adviser for the Diocese of York, responsible for equipping and resourcing those working with children and young people in the 620 churches in the area. Prior to that, she was the Programme Lead for the Mission and Ministry degree courses at Cliff College, having previously worked with Oxford CYM training students in youth and children’s ministry.
Carolyn has a wealth of experience both as a practitioner and a lecturer and trainer, working for her local church as a Children’s Evangelist and running events like the Scripture Union mission in Aylesbury. She has written material for Scripture Union for many years and is the author of ‘Slugs and Snails and Puppy Dogs’ Tails: Helping Boys Connect with God’ and co-editor of ‘Re-thinking Children’s work in churches’ which is coming out next year. She is currently completing doctoral research into children’s spirituality and faith development, but in her ‘spare’ time loves being with friends and family, drinking good coffee, laughing, and looking at beautiful things.
