Acting Chaplain appointed

We are delighted to announce that we have appointed Gail Adams as an Acting Chaplain to the community at Ridley Hall. Gail will work with our Honorary Chaplain, Ian Randall, to offer chaplaincy cover during Anne Aldridge’s absence.

Gail AdamsGail is spiritual mentor, life coach, retreat leader and partner in the Beloved Life project. Her passion is to nurture daily patterns of stillness, presence and self-awareness.

Gail writes, "I love this quote by Desmond Tutu and try to bring the spirit of this to all my conversations; 'We all blossom in the presence of one who sees the good in us and who can coax the best out of us...' In the grace of God, may it be so.”

Gail is married to Ian (Ridley’s tutor in context-based training and pioneer learning). They have grown up children and have recently become grandparents. Gail begins her role immediately and will be with us until the end of June.
