About the Author

Margaret Withers took up her role as the Archbishop's Officer for Evangelism among Children in June 2001. Formerly, Children's Work Adviser for the Diocese of Rochester, she taught in several Inner London schools and for the Open University before becoming a Diocesan Children's Adviser in 1989. During her years as a Diocesan Adviser, she became heavily involved in providing training and support for voluntary children's leaders in parishes. In 1996, while Children's Officer for the diocese of Chelmsford, she established children's work as an integral part of Reader training as well as providing a similar input to several theological courses. The increasing demand for simple basic training for inexperienced leaders led to her writing a four-evening course for a group of parishes in 1998. This formed the basis of her book, Fired up... Not Burnt Out which was published under BRF's Barnabas imprint in 2001. She is also author of The Gifts of Baptism, Welcome to the Lord's Table and Where are the children? also published under the Barnabas imprint.
