Lu Skerratt

Lu Skerratt-Love is a queer Anglican living in Sheffield. They grew up in North Essex where their introduction to Christianity was varied but allowed them to explore and encounter all sorts of worship styles and expressions of church.

Lu first read Theology at the University of Leeds before doing a MA in Biblical Studies at Kings College London. After a period working in the refugee and mental health sector, Lu is now a qualitative researcher with Church Army's Research Unit where they research all sorts of exciting and dynamic projects relating to evangelism, mission and ministry in the UK and Ireland. They are also studying for a DthM at Durham University (St John's College) where their research topic is: ' Decolonising Space and Place: Identities of belonging in the Church of England' . 

Lu worships at St Mark's Broomhill and Broomhall in Sheffield and has particular interests in the intersections of faith and ecofeminism, anti-racism, queer identities of living as 'betwixt and between' and contemporary expressions of liberation theology. Lu is in a civil partnership and in their spare time enjoys spending time with their Pink Palace chosen family, reading, playing squash, bouldering, and board games!
