The Revd Jarel Robinson-Brown is the Methodist Chaplain at King's. He works part-time at King's and his usual day at King's is tbc.
Jarel has been a Methodist Minister since 2013, and joined King's as the Methodist Chaplain in 2019. He was born in West London in 1991, and trained for ordination at Wesley House, Cambridge (2010-2013) as well as being an Ordinand at Clare College Chapel. He has served churches in Cardiff, South Wales and most recently in South East London.
Prior to full-time ministry Jarel studied classical music as a pianist and organist at the London College of Music, and privately in Paris.
After ministerial training in Cambridge, Jarel continued to read Theology at Cardiff University and is currently researching Coptic Monasticism and Religion in Late Antiquity. He has interests in Liberation Theology, Queer Theology and the life of the Prophets as explored in the work of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel.
In his spare time he is often found on Twitter, walking his Jack Russell Terrier, writing, watching James Baldwin videos on Youtube, listening to Daniel Caesar, Lauryn Hill, or Noname’s ‘Telefone’ Album (again), or enjoying a nice glass (or two!) of wine somewhere in London.
Jarel currently lives in Putney, and is happy to talk to anyone, whether Staff or Students, about absolutely anything at all.
