Parents and Carers
You can find out more about New Team by looking around this website.
Under 16s need a form signed by a parent or carer for every trip or activity.
For street work, we work in pairs, carry ID and wear jackets or t-shirts with the New Team logo on them.
All youth workers (paid and volunteers) and trustees are members of the PVG scheme.
If you have any questions please contact us.
Meet the Team
Peter – Chair
I work for a Christian charity, and have a keen interest in traveling to new places. While I’m in Scotland I enjoy getting my walking boots on and spending days in the hills. I am a member of the worship team at Bishopbriggs Community Church where I attend together with my wife and three wee boys.
Chris Brett – Treasurer & Secretary
I was a Biology Lecturer for 25 years before working for Scripture Union in Scotland as Volunteers Manager, after years of volunteering on camps/residentials for children and young people with S.U. I now work part time for the Church of Scotland in Argyll, where my wife, Ros, and I live part-time.
Liz Ervine – Child Protection
I am a retired Headteacher after working with Glasgow City Council for 39 years, my last job was at Springburn Academy where I saw first hand how Christian youth workers in the area could, by sharing their faith, be a living example of the light of the world to young people in the area. In my retirement I am involved in many different things, working with GCC in their probationer teacher programme, supporting Intergenerational Mentoring in schools in Glasgow and the University of the Third Age in the new group in Glasgow West End. I attend St Silas Church where I am part of the kid zone as a supporter, enjoy attending a House group and am the church’s Tearfund Ambassador. I love being a Granny to 2 year old James and I have the pleasure of looking after him on a Monday!
Louise McMorris – Project Leader (20 hours)
I love learning drums even though I’m not really musical. I like doing craft and going for long walks by the sea or in a forest. I love youth work in Govan. I love my friends and family. 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.
We are always recruiting volunteers for a wide variety of roles including youth work, prayer, admin, safety, IT, graphic design, management, building management, fundraising (grant applications and donor recruitment) and many more.
