Sarah has worked with children, young people and their families for the last twenty years, doing all sorts, including youth groups, holiday clubs, toddler groups and inter-generational worship.
She trained with CYM at St. John’s College in Nottingham, followed by an MTh at Regent’s Park College focussing on young people and children, in particular involving young people in church meetings. At the same time, she was ordained as an Accredited Youth Specialist.
She has continued to teach at CYM, as well as serving as a member of the national board of trustees. She is also an Associate Tutor at Northern Baptist College working with Ministers in Training and occasionally lecturing.
Sarah was the Baptist Pastor at Hugglescote Community Church near Coalville. The church runs a community café, so she worked at developing community in the café and links with the wider community, particularly with younger generations. They also experimented with intergenerational worship. She also is a member of the Baptists Together CYF Round Table.
If you want to talk about children, youth and family work in your church, employing a youth or children’s worker, exploring inter-generational worship, or anything else CYF related, or if you’re thinking about getting some training in children’s and youth work, get in touch with Sarah to have a conversation.
There is a mailing list for the EMBA of those who work with, or who have an interest in children, youth and families so if you would like to be added to that and receive occasional useful news and information let Sarah know.
