Revd Alison Jones trained at St Mellitus College London and is now a Pioneer Minister leading a rural church plant in mid-county Nottinghamshire. Alison is passionate about encouraging families and individuals to explore church and faith in Jesus through hospitality and creative ways of gathering to worship. As a church they are about to embark on a season of meeting together as all ages, all the time! Alison served a curacy in a village on the outskirts of Reading where she saw the challenges, and exciting opportunities, of sharing the gospel in a rural setting. As a Chaplain Alison hopes to offer a supportive ‘space’ for students as they journey this time of formation and preparation for ministry.
