Hi everybody, it’s a pleasure for me to be here.

It’s been a fast paced start to life at BCY, with meeting lots of people at different churches in Bury St Edmunds and all the work going on in the schools too.

PAST
I come from a background working with youth in different situations. I have worked in the fun side of youth club (where getting messy is a necessity). I have worked alongside churched and unchurched young people, held debates, taught in and out of churches. Recently I co-managed 3 different housing schemes catering solely for young people aged 16-25. This was obviously the more serious side of working with young people as all who lived in the shared accommodation were registered homeless by the council.

PRESENT
I am currently putting all the skills and training God has given me into being the best I can be for BCY. Already doing assemblies, teaching, debating and being involved with ethics and politics in schools, I am also building relationships with our churches in and around Bury St Edmunds. I participated in a recent Q&A session at a church group, will be helping with a holiday club, have been meeting and greeting at some of the Sunday services, attending the pastor and leader lunches and recently attended the Churches Together gathering.

FUTURE
I would love to be a part of more youth events in Bury St Edmunds, where young people meet Jesus for themselves.

  • Stunning feedback on your assembly today. One of the pastoral staff made a point of coming to tell me how much she enjoyed it. Bravo!

  • I like Rock Solid club because I can be myself, relax, socialize with new people and learn about God.
