An urban mission advocate and activist for nearly 30 years, Juliet and her husband formed a church with the first Urban Expression team in Tower Hamlets, East London, in 1997. Juliet remains an advocate for Urban Expression, a mission agency that seeks the well-being of under-churched urban neighbourhoods and the creation of relevant forms of church on the margins, but since 2015 has focussed on developing peacemaking initiatives through a collaboration called Peaceful Borders. Peaceful Borders is primarily responding to the largest movement of people across Europe since WWII. Juliet continues to teach on the Crucible Course which seeks to equip people to follow Jesus on the margins.
Previously, Juliet also project-managed the relaunch of The Fishermen’s Chapel (a Methodist church) in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. She was also the Development Worker for The Mennonite Trust for a time and a member of the Mission Theology Advisory Group, a partnership between the Church of England and Churches Together in Britain and Ireland. Juliet has been a Baptist minister since 1996. She co-authored a booklet with Stuart Murray: Church Planting in the Inner City – the Urban Expression Story, and curated the stories featured in Urban To The Core: motives for incarnational mission.
Juliet is married to Jim and they have two adult children. She enjoys travelling with family and friends, hosting parties at their bar and walking the dog.
