Meet the team
The team in the North East & Yorkshire are dedicated to reaching the 95% of children and young people who do not go to church. Through our work in schools, churches and local communities we seek to create new opportunities for children and young people to respond to Jesus.
"We're here to equip you to do mission with young people locally, and would love to hear from you."
North East and Yorkshire Regional Team Leader
I've been involved with Scripture Union in the North East for many years, having first been a volunteer on SU holidays. I lead the regional team in the North East and Yorkshire, and together we want to encourage outreach in the community, Christian groups in schools and training for God's work across this region. Why not get in touch to see if there's anything we can do for you?
My role is to provide organisational and administrative support to the regional team and the ministry throughout the region. I communicate and publicise our work, help to organise the many events we are involved in and deal with a lot of queries - even if I don’t know the answer, I usually know who does!
Development Worker (Schools) - North East and Yorkshire Region
I've been on the SU staff for over 16 years and previously taught geography in a secondary school. As we seek to reach the 95% of children and young people not in church, I'm keen to see young people equipped to live for God at school and to help their friends explore the good news of Jesus.
Development worker (church & community)
I've been involved in youth and children’s work most of my life as a teacher, youth worker, schools worker and as a volunteer. I believe in outreach to children and young people and my role is about encouraging, equipping and inspiring God’s church to be effective partners with God in the exciting project of reaching children, youth and families with the good news about Jesus. Get in touch if there are ways that I can support or advise you in any way to be more effective at doing this.
SU Development Worker
My role is to equip and support local mission partners and to develop opportunities to pioneer missional work with others with a focus along the M62 corridor area. I've worked with some of the most marginalised young people in young offender’s institutions and in the community. I'm excited about Scripture Union's focus on reaching children and young people who don't yet know Jesus, and love serving those who are working to achieve this. If that's you, I'd love to hear from you!
