Dr Selina Stone

Dr Selina Stone is a theologian and religious scholar committed to producing and sharing knowledge that contributes to liberation, justice and healing. Her professional work is informed by her roots, growing up as a Black girl in a loving working-class family in inner-city Birmingham, and in her Black Pentecostal church. Both contexts provided her with an instinctive concern for the vulnerable and overlooked and the motivation to think critically about faith and spirituality. 

As a community organiser, she worked to tackle exploitative lending to communities in socio-economic precarity. As a lecturer, she brought public issues and marginalised voices to the centre of theological education. She is currently working at Durham University to diversify and decolonise theological education and ministry training in the UK. She is a sought-after speaker, preacher, writer and advisor for those working in the sectors of faith, charity and theological education.
