Rev Professor Jeremy Duff
I am the Principal at St Padarn’s, which means I lead the community, I set its direction and structures, and I am its primary ‘public face’ to the Church in Wales, and the wider community. I have a particular passion for the community’s spirituality, and its focus on formation and mission. I have an academic expertise in New Testament, which I love to teach, alongside broader issues in leadership and ministry. Most recently I was the vicar of deprived urban community near Liverpool.
