We’re delighted to announce that Revd Dr Allison Fenton will be joining the Queen’s staff from Jan 1st 2021 as the new Anglican Admissions Tutor. Allison will take over from Revd Dr Andrea Russell who is moving to a post in the Diocese of Oxford. Allison comes to us with rich experience in both Anglican and ecumenical theological education and training, having worked within the past decade in the dioceses of Newcastle, Durham and Carlisle.
Allison says, ‘Although I am sad to be leaving friends and colleagues in Cumbria and will miss the beauty of the Lake District, I am looking forward to working with a rich diversity of people at Queen’s and (after lockdown) rediscovering the joys of city life. I’m excited about working for an institution which is both inclusive and prophetic. It will be a privilege to work with a gifted staff team to encourage the formation of faithful women and men from the Church of England and beyond who are responding to God’s call to ordained ministry.’
We look forward to welcoming Allison to Birmingham, and to gaining from all that she will bring to Anglican ministerial formation at Queen’s.
