I'm Paul Coleman, I'm the Mission and Ministry enabler for the Leeds North and East Circuit, currently working closely with the churches in Cross Gates, Colton and Christ Church in Halton.

I am particularly interested in developing online mission and ministry and looking for ways in which the church can connect with and serve online communities as well as our local communities. I am very technically minded and enjoy messing around with and learning about technology (both old and new) and its impacts on society. (I also have a PhD in the History of Science from the University of Leeds).

I am currently working on projects related the the "right to Repair" and looking at how repair cafes might help us to connect with people in our local communities as well as in helping us to better care for the entirety of creation.

I am also passionate about worship and see worship as being central to the life of the church. While I love singing and need to be pried away from a piano, this is only one aspect and expression of worship, and I always encourage people to explore different ways of worshiping.

I have recently started exploring ways to make more connections between my faith and some of my hobbies, particularly computer gaming, looking at what it means to be a Christian in online games and the ways in which my faith affects my gaming and ways in which gaming can be incorporated into my own times of prayer and worship. You can follow some of this journey in my, currently somewhat intermittent, live streams on YouTube and Twitch.

As a mission and ministry enabler I want to help people discover what their gifts are, what God has given them a passion for and then to help provide any training needed or to create opportunities for people to use these gifts in their local churches and communities.
