Revd Emma Ineson BA, MPhil, PhD
Tutor in Pastoral and Practical Theology
Emma is Tutor in Pastoral and Practical Theology and also has responsibility for Spirituality in the college. She was teaching part time but became a full-time faculty member in 2010.
Before coming to Bristol Emma was Chaplain to the Lee Abbey Christian Community and Retreat Centre in Devon and before that a curate in Sheffield. Her doctoral research was on the nature of power and authority in the language of worship. Following her experience of living in community, one of Emma's interests is spirituality and worship in community contexts.
Emma is married to Mat, who is a vicar in Bristol and they have two school-age children. She has pastoral tutor responsibilities in the context-based training programme as well as in the college.
She is due to leave us at the end of the academic year to become Chaplain to the Bishop of Bristol, the Right Revd Mike Hill.

'The themes of the book are central and important, not only for Lee Abbey because they are part of their story, their mission and their identity, but also for all communities and dare I say for all Christians. Community and hospitality, worship, healing of hearts, living diversity, conflict management, formation of leaders, responding to the needs of young people. These themes reveal a vision and some very down-to-earth insights that can be useful and even necessary for all communities however different they may be.'
