⚙️ Youth Workers ⚙️

🥁 LouiseProject Leader

I like doing craft and going for long walks by the sea or in a forest. I love learning drums even though I’m not really musical. I love youth work in Govan. The best part of following Jesus is knowing he loves me whether I’m feeling loveable or not! I studied youth work at International Christian College but I’ve learned most about youth work from young people.

🎵 Matt Youth Worker

I am originally from Essex. Yes, I can tell the time. No, I do not know Joey Essex, although I did go to school with Mario’s older sister…
I moved to Scotland in 2016. I used to work in sales. Got burnt out and ended up homeless. My family are not religious, but I have always believed there was ‘something’ there. I experienced hard times as a kid leading me away from God, causing me to make bad choices for most of my youth and early adult life. Being homeless in Glasgow restored my faith in humanity. Through homelessness and the journey back towards mainstream society I came to faith (that story is way too long to post here, if you would like to hear more about it just ask). I spent a lot of my early life taking from society. When I came to faith, I made a promise to myself and to God that I would give back. I am studying Community Development. I also facilitate music workshops. I felt called to work with young people. A couple of years ago I married my wife who is from Govan. Both of those things helped lead me to New Team.
I like playing football. I am a sound engineer and I love making music in my spare time. I play a bit of guitar, bass, drums, piano (and flute, although I tend not to mention that as much…). I’m not amazing at any of them but being creative brings me a lot of joy. Also, I love playing Fifa.

⚙️ Trustees ⚙️

🌊 ChrisChild Protection & Treasurer

Chris: I enjoy sailing, singing in our Community Choir, and cooking great food for lots of people.  I’m good at organising things, so I try to support Christians who seek to tell others about Jesus.  I work for the Scottish Episcopal Church; previously I organised youthwork volunteers for Scripture Union Scotland, and before that I taught Biology at Glasgow University.
