Ven Julian Hubbard

Role: Director of Ministry
The Venerable Julian Hubbard became Director of Ministry for the Archbishops' Council in October 2011. He leads a team responsible for developing policy and delivering support to those in lay and ordained ministry throughout the Church. The Ministry Division is responsible for the training of more than 900 new clergy, lay Readers and others admitted to ministry each year.

Julian was Archdeacon of Oxford and Canon of Christ Church from 2005, responsible for an Archdeaconry which included the city of Oxford and the county of Oxfordshire, with communities ranging from urban centres with significant diversity to small rural villages. In addition to responsibility for developing diocesan pastoral strategy and the allocation of resources, he also chaired the diocesan committee for interfaith work and was a founder member of the Oxford Council of Faiths. As a member of the University of Oxford, he was widely involved in the colleges on behalf of the Diocese.

He was previously a tutor in Church History at Wycliffe Hall and Chaplain at Jesus College Oxford. After six years as Vicar of The Bourne in Farnham, Surrey, he was Director of Ministerial Training in the Diocese of Guildford and a residentiary canon of the Cathedral. He was also Senior Selection Secretary at the Advisory Council for the Church's Ministry, a predecessor body to the Ministry Division, from 1991 to 1993.
