About Simon

sjcSimon Cross is a chaplain, community activist, writer and PhD (theology) student with a love for deconstruction and critical thinking. Simon’s day to day chaplaincy work includes pastoral and community development work, which he largely reflects on through the lenses of process theology, apophaticism, and theopoetics: challenging widely held distinctions and seeking new (or renewed) connections.

Simon has published on the phenomenon of New Monasticism in the UK, and on nature connection in the Christian tradition. As a journalist Simon wrote for a variety of publications including most of the national daily and Sunday newspapers in the UK, as well as a number of magazines and websites.
