Mrs Heather Holdsworth MA(SFD), BEd(Hons), DipTh

Heather is a Bible teacher and part time artist.  Her interest is in the subject of Spiritual Formation and Discipleship for people of all ages.

After graduating with a degree in education, she taught in a socially deprived area of Edinburgh (1994-99).  She was then seconded to teach in ‘Special Education’ in a school for emotionally and behaviourally disordered young people.  There she implemented a fresh, whole school approach to discipline with a focus on enabling wholeness and growth in restricted lives. She has a keen interest in how people work and has run and consulted for numerous children and youth clubs over the years.

She has been married to Adrian since 1997.  Whilst living in Cambridge with Adrian’s Physics career, the leadership of their local church strongly exhorted them to make ministry their fulltime occupation.  They completed a 2 year diploma in Practical Theology at The Faith Mission Bible College, Edinburgh; a year of evangelism and church support in Derbyshire and three transformational years in Chicago at Moody Theological Seminary.  Heather teaches on the subject of Spiritual Formation & Discipleship and Children & Youth Ministry.
