Dr Janet Tollington

Biography:

I am passionate about the Old Testament and love helping students discover the riches of this part of the scriptures, encouraging some to gain the extra benefit that comes from learning Biblical Hebrew. The chance to work with lay and ordained throughout the church, often in ecumenical contexts, is both a privilege and a delight; and the stimulus that comes from my university involvement enriches my teaching. I have had several academic essays published but also write material for Roots, Scripture Union and the Bible Reading Fellowship on occasions, as well as sermons for the Preacher's Press. Engaging with local churches in their worship and learning is important to me, as is my role within Training for Learning and Service (TLS), which I have been part of since it was introduced into the URC. Overseeing the sabbatical programme at Westminster as Director of the Cheshunt Foundation adds a welcome international dimension to my work and the life of the college.
