The Rev'd Ally Barrett



Ally Barrett joined St Catharine's as Chaplain, having spent four years in theological education (as tutor and Director of Pastoral Studies at Westcott House, Cambridge) and eleven years as a parish priest in the Diocese of Ely, as well as some time as a children's minister in the USA.  Her research, teaching and publications have focused on reflective practice and theological reflection, and the role of (and experience of) liturgy in life events, with a forthcoming book on using reflective practice and improvisation in all age preaching.  With a background in music and the arts, she is a keen painter and singer, and is also a published hymn-writer.
