This book gets into the heads and hearts of our teams and unpacks the values that have inspired these missionaries to be urban to the core.

She has two children: Henry, 12 and Penny, 10. She has centred her ministry on incarnational living on a large urban housing estate with a predominantly British-Bangladeshi Muslim community.

These days she continues as a speaker, writer, and trainer in missional community action and leadership development, and is locally involved as a community activist. A committed inner-city dweller, in her spare time she pioneered with others an emerging church (which at twelve years old has now emerged!), and although having stepped down as their leader she continues to journey with them...

Title: Leading Teams – Positives, Pressures and Potential

An exploration of the leadership role in building and leading effective teams. This will include consideration of some of the principles and practicalities of an empowering leadership style and how vulnerability as a team leader can be a positive thing.
