Welcome week at Oak Hill
Kristi Mair, Pastoral Support and Research Fellow at Oak Hill, writes:
Cruising blissfully down an empty M1 on a Friday morning, friend in tow, M&S caterpillar snacks on the go, and Sarah McMillan blasting out on Spotify, I had no idea what to expect from my first week at Oak Hill whatsoever.
My heart started pounding that little bit more as we drove through Cockfosters, went over the roundabout and began to turn into the Oak Hill site. As the big, white building loomed ahead, I thought of all I'd left behind me: friends, nearby family, a job I loved, dogs, my favourite barista. What will life be like for me moving into a leading theological institution in the UK?
Mark Pickles to be new Director of North West Partnership
Dan Strange, College Director of Oak Hill, writes:
We are delighted to announce that from the end of this academic year, Mark Pickles will become the new Director of the North West Partnership. Given Mark's great contribution here, we are very sorry to see him leave. But we are excited about his new appointment, which will strengthen Oak Hill's relationship with training in the north-west.
We are also delighted to announce that Johnny Juckes will be teaching the Gospel Driven Leadership module, bringing his 30+ years of ministry experience to the programme. In addition, the Revd Dave Walker will be involved in teaching Anglican Ministry. Dave is Vicar of Christ Church North Finchley, and previously graduated with an MTh from Oak Hill in 2007.
