meet Barbara and Kevin Macnish

Barbara and Kevin Macnish have been highly treasured members of the Sanctuary’s Management Group for several months now, and involved with the project considerably before this through prayer and creative contributions. They have made an enormous difference already, so we thought it was high time our virtual community got to meet them too!

Barbara and Kevin MacnishKevin Macnish, PhD is a Teaching Fellow and Consultant in Applied Ethics at the University of Leeds.

He has worked with the European Commission and several UK parliamentary committees, and has been interviewed on national television and radio in relation to his research.

He has also been a civil servant in the UK and the US, and helped to start a church in Florence which recently celebrated its tenth anniversary.

Kevin has degrees in Philosophy, International Relations, and Theology.

Kevin is thrilled to be able to offer his experience and skills to help develop some of the thinking and ideas that underpin the Sanctuary.

Barbara is married to Kevin and comes to the Sanctuary from a visual and creative arts background.

She is currently a team development coach with the business she founded – Triquester Teams – and loves working with teams and individuals to develop their environments for maximum growth and productivity.

Before this she has been a middle school Art and English teacher in inner city Baltimore; a picture framer; the Office Manager for the executive team at World Relief; and a church planter in Florence, Italy.

She especially loves her involvement with creative projects at the Sanctuary such as regularly contributing original artwork to outreach projects like the window and undertaking creative writing for the Sanctuary’s outward focused worship resource library.

Barbara and Kevin have two human children and a third that’s rather hairier!
