Lauren and her husband Jonathan moved to Vancouver in 2013. Lauren came to the Cathedral with a BA in Christian Youth Work from Chester University and a Master's from Vancouver School of Theology in Public and Pastoral Leadership. Lauren has worked in children's and youth work and ministry including youth drop-ins, children's summer camps, work with youth with alternate needs, prison chaplaincy, regional and national youth councils as well as having worked for 4 years as an outreach worker on the Down Town Eastside.
Lauren previously worked for the Diocese of New Westminster as the Administrative Assistant and Screening in Faith Facilitator and as youth leader at St. Albans in Burnaby.
When she's not planning things for the Cathedral's children, youth and families, or helping with social media, she can be found baking and sharing the fruits of her hobby with any and all who have a sweet tooth.
Christ Church Cathedral gathers, worships, and serves on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and Səl̓ilwətaʔɬ nations
