About me…

…and this site:

Once upon a time, blogging was a thing. It was somewhere to ruminate on subjects as diverse as musicals and the theology of boy-bands, or to document the trials and tribulations of training to become a vicar. In recent years this site has become more of a repository for sermons and the odd article when inspiration hits, or as a place to store useful things.

Liz is now Priest-in-Charge of Emmanuel Holloway, a small & lively church just off the busy Holloway Road in Islington, north London – where she’s been based since 2018. Prior to that, Liz was based just up the hill in Highbury as part-time curate at Christ Church Highbury. There she combined parish ministry with freelance research work, focusing much of her attention on the area of church growth and impact measurement (examples of this can be found here).

Having trained for ordination at St Mellitus College, Liz stayed on an extra year in order to complete a MA in Christian Leadership. She is a regular lecturer on their Beginning Theology programme and has also previously been a guest lecturer at Westminster Theology Centre (WTC).

In her spare time, she’s involved with a fabulous missional community known as Matryoshka Haus.

If you’re interested, you can learn 25 random pieces of information about Liz here. Over 10+ years of blogging, she’s created a few series of posts:

  • Friday is Friday Fun day. [Very original name.] A collection of vaguely amusing things to provide some light entertainment at the end of the working week.
  • Throughout 2010, 2011 & 2012, she took note of everything she did for the first time.
  • Since 2011, she’s chronicled Matryoshka Haus’ visits to Chateau Duffy.
  • In moments of intensity and angst, she ponders the Eternal Problem.
  • Since feeling a call to the priesthood, she’s been compiling an irreverent guide to becoming a reverend.

It goes without saying that this blog is best described as ‘eclectic’.
