Revd Dr Sean Doherty is Director of Studies and Tutor and Lecturer in Ethics. Having studied Theology as an undergraduate, he worked as a barman and then for the Anglican mission Agency USPG. He trained for ordination at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford, where he completed an MPhil and DPhil in Christian ethics, focussing on Christian responses to capitalism, and his doctorate was subsequently published by Oxford University Press as Theology and Economic Ethics. He has also written on two very accessible books on Christian ethics called The Only Way is Ethics. Part 1 is about Marriage and Sex, and Part 2, Life and Death is about medical ethics. Sean is also actively involved in local community and church life as a school governor and an Assistant Minister at a church plant in an inner-city housing estate, and in the wider Church of England as a member of the General Synod of the Church of England where he sits on the Mission and Public Affairs Council. He is married to Gaby, who is also training for ordination, and they have four children.
