Appointment of Editor for the Holiness Journal

Holiness is an international theological journal of Wesleyan theology that aims to resource the global Wesleyan/Methodist family for the transformation of church and world. (;

Launched at Pentecost, 2014 Holiness is owned by Wesley House Cambridge, with editorial responsibility delegated to an international and independent editorial board.  It is published twice a year online, offering free access to its readership. It contains peer-reviewed articles, shorter articles of a theological and devotional nature, poetry and book reviews. The journal aims to promote global conversation between scholars and practitioners particularly in the areas of Wesley House’s own work in Global Wesleyan Theology, Leadership and Ministry Development, and Faith in Public Life.

At this exciting time of global theological engagement, the Trustees of Wesley House, Cambridge are seeking to appoint a permanent, part-time editor from September 2022, in succession to the Revd Dr Richard Clutterbuck.  The new editor will be expected to work with the editorial board to develop the global authorship and readership of the journal and to encourage Wesley House’s research students and other new scholars to share the fruits of their study through publication.

We are now looking for our next editor for an autumn start. This is a freelance position, working remotely. Issues are expected to take c. 100-150 hours of editorial time and a fee of £3,000 per published issue is offered.
