Deirdre is passionate about the churches engagement with poverty as an issue of justice and faith. She is a writer for Preachers’ Magazine, Holiness Today and has various chapters published in a range of books. Alongside leading NTC, Deirdre is especially interested in teaching and exploring issues relating to Urban Mission and Ministry, Wesley, Wesleyan theology, contextual and practical theology. “I love thinking alongside others and engaging in the area of social justice: exploring theology, hospitality, mission as justice, engaging with poverty and deepening our call to be fully Christ-like in relation to others”.
