Ruth Whitehead

Ruth is a minister of the United Reformed Church, currently serving (since 2013) as Moderator of the South Western Synod. Before this she had pastorates in Woodford Green, Oxford, Abingdon and South Cambridgeshire – a range of churches from suburbs to market towns and small villages – all of which had a strong ecumenical component.

Ruth feels that she has benefitted from Bridge Builders training and values highly the skills of mediation and conflict-resolution which are vital for ministry, especially at a time of rapid change in the church.
