For the past year we have hosted two interns for three days a week each. Ben Young has been working with the ACCelerate team doing youth work, and Sam Archer (left) has been developing our music and worship, including the Beach Hut events. Both these temporary posts finished at the end of August and although they are both staying part of the church, Ben and Sam are now pursuing their own interests in different ways. We would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank them both for what they achieved in the past twelve months. They have worked diligently and faithfully, often quietly making things happen behind the scenes. We pray every blessing and success on their future.
Youth Support Worker
Back in July we received confirmation of a grant towards a new Youth Support Worker post for the next four years (£12,000 a year plus our own contribution). After interviewing various candidates we are delighted to announce that former intern Ben Young (left) was successful and will now be working for us Full-Time, helping to run our youth programmes as part of the ACCelerate team. The post also includes training towards a BA (Hons) in Youth & Community Work which will allow Ben to gain valuable knowledge while he is working. We’re very excited that we have someone in post for four years and look forward to seeing how this role develops.
