Dr Karl Benson

Hi, I'm Karl. I'm the Pastor of the Spirituality Centre and the founding Pastor of The Lifeworks Hub.

I believe your lifework—your divine calling—is to be your most authentic self. This unique path to wholeness is found by following the desires that rise from your deepest and truest self—your union with God.

My lifework is to facilitate spiritual exploration to help you connect with God and discern your unique path to wholeness. The path that releases you to be you.

I do this through Spiritual Direction, retreats, workshops, and teaching.

These offerings have grown from over fifteen years of ministry in Church leadership.

I entered full-time ministry in 2010 as the Assistant Pastor of Eden Church Malvern. In 2013 I became the Senior Pastor of two congregations—the first in Matlock and the second in Wirksworth—which I brought together as one Church in 2014 founding The Lifeworks Hub, with the vision of helping people find and live their life's work. I say more about this vision in the article "Our Story".

In 2018 I trained in both Spiritual Direction and Retreat Giving at St Beuno's Ignatian Spirituality Centre, where I also directed Individually Guided Retreats (IGRs).
