About Jane

Jane Butcher

Jane was born in Denver, USA, but grew up and was educated in the UK. She originally trained and worked as a teacher, but moved into church ministry in 1993. She has a wide range of experience in schools and churches, in both the UK and USA. She has led training sessions and seminars in a variety of schools, churches and dioceses on many different aspects of RE and children's ministry, is a member of various local and national committees, and is also an accredited Godly Play Teacher.

Jane oversees the Barnabas Schools Team who lead creative Barnabas RE days and teacher training across the UK. She also heads up the Faith in Homes ministry, which is something she has a passion and vision for both as a member of the Barnabas Children's Ministry Team and as a parent. She has a desire that parents, church leaders and others share in this ministry, and feel encouraged, supported and resourced to engage with such an important area.
