    Dr Sandra Brower

    Originally from Canada, Sandra came to the UK to pursue an MA in theology. She returned to Canada to help plant and pastor a church before marrying and moving permanently to the UK in 1998. After completing her PhD, Sandra was a chaplain at the University of Derby, offering pastoral care and spiritual guidance to students and staff of all faiths and none. She is a lecturer at Cliff College, in Derbyshire, and is the BA Theology Programme Lead.

    Sandra lives in Buxton with her husband and two children. She is active in her local community, chairing local school PTA and leading worship in her parish’s monthly Messy Church outreach.  She is a trained musician and has taught piano for over 25 years.

    Sandra’s research interests include the theology of worship, the doctrine of the ascension, and – as a confessed foodie – the relationship between food and theology. She is keen to explore issues relating to mental health, and the theology of hospitality.

    There is no fee for attending the seminar but please email p.a.bissell@durham.ac.uk to confirm attendance to h help with catering numbers.
