Susan Durber cropThe Revd Dr Susan Durber, outgoing principal of Westminster College, has been appointed as Theology Co-ordinator for Christian Aid.

Dr Durber will be enabling and supporting staff across Christian Aid to root the organisation’s work in theology. She will be working with others, including partners from around the world, to develop theological thinking and reflection and, as part of her role, will establish and support a global theological advisory network.

Speaking of her appointment Susan Durber said: “I’m very excited about this new role, and I look forward to working for Christian Aid, with whom the United Reformed Church is in close partnership.  Christian Aid has long been eager to ground its work to end global poverty in the teaching of Jesus and the faith of the Church – and I hope I can bring all that I am to helping that happen.”

Dr Durber takes up her new role in September.
