Simonne Wood

Simonne Wood is Woodbrooke’s Programme Coordinator for Worship & Spirituality. In that role, she organises courses for the worship and spirituality programme, teaches on a variety of online and in-person courses, and coordinate Woodbrooke’s online worship, in association with colleagues at EMES.

Simonne’s lifelong spiritual journey has given her experience of Christian, Buddhist and Jewish spirituality, but she found her home in Quakerism in 2008. She continues to value interfaith collaboration. She spent 8 years in Aotearoa, New Zealand, where she was an active member of Dunedin Monthly Meeting, before moving back to the South of England in 2022.

Professionally, Simonne has a background in administration in academic and social enterprise settings. In more recent years, she moved into adult vocational education, with a specialism in online learning.

Outside of work, Simonne has been active in a variety of social justice and environmental organisations over the years. In 2004, this led her to study for a Master’s in International Relations, with a dissertation focusing on the environmental damage caused by so-called “sustainable” development.
