Pastor of Transforming Discipleship
Ruth joined the staff team at St John’s in October 2011 and is the Pastor of Transforming Discipleship. For the last seven years Ruth has worked for CPAS as a Leadership Development Adviser. Prior to that Ruth had a couple of years with CMS as their National Children’s Work Adviser and before that a whole number of years serving as Youth Pastor at St Thomas’ Church in Lancaster. In her spare time Ruth loves all things creative, spending time with friends (usually over a good meal!) and enjoys any opportunity to go skiing.
Ruth is passionate about seeing people of all ages come to know Christ and to grow in love and knowledge for God, and about helping people to discover and use their gifts to serve God’s kingdom purposes, whatever their age. Ruth’s role at St John’s involves supporting the small groups that happen within the life of the church and developing the Ministry Assistant Programme.
