Revd Dr Nick Moore

As Academic Dean, Nick has overall responsibility for our academic programmes; he teaches New Testament and Greek, and also has interests in Patristics and Liturgy.

Born and raised in Durham, and with a background in (and love for!) all things French, Nick trained for ministry at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford; while there, he completed a DPhil in Theology. His thesis, published as Repetition in Hebrews (Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2015), addresses the theme of repetition in the Letter to the Hebrews, arguing that it functions in a variety of ways and not (as has often been assumed) uniformly and negatively – this has implications for liturgy, worship, and discipleship. He is also interested in enriching our understanding of the Scriptures through attention to earlier Christians’ engagement with the same texts.

He is passionate about conveying the wealth of the biblical and Christian tradition to each and every person, and carrying the gospel across languages and cultures. From 2014–2017 he served as assistant curate at Stranton Church in Hartlepool. Nick is married to Bekah, who shares his love of languages and ministry, and they have two primary-aged children.
