Meet the team

The team in the north west are dedicated to reaching the 95% of children and young people who do not go to church. Through their work in schools, churches and local communities we seek to create new opportunities for children and young people to respond to Jesus

"Coming from a wide variety of backgrounds, we have a wealth of experience, skills and talents that we'd love to use to support you and your churches, wherever you are in the region."

I am passionate about children and young people hearing and responding to the gospel and enjoy the part I play in the SU movement as the North-West Team Leader. I have lived in the North West for 19 years and love all that God is doing in the region.


Claire Hughes

Development Worker (Schools)

I’m a Yorkshire lass, but I now love, and live in, the north west. I love seeing children and young people grapple with, and grasp, the good news of Jesus. I am excited to be a part of the team and see the gospel change hearts and lives across the region.


Lucy Pearson

SU Development Worker (Greater Manchester)

I absolutely love seeing the lives of young people transformed by the love of Jesus. By working with churches and communities across Manchester, we can give children and young people the opportunity to hear the gospel and be transformed by his love.


Robin Gerrard

Scripture Union Development Worker (Church and Community), North-West Region

I’m a Liverpool lad and have spent most of my life living and working in Merseyside. I love the outdoors and I’m passionate about music in worship. I believe that local people in local churches, inspired by the Bible, have a vital role in sharing the good news of Jesus within their own communities. I love being able to equip, empower and encourage churches to reach out to local children and young people with the good news.

As the Support Worker, I help with all the behind-the-scenes administration for the team. I'm actively involved in my church, helping with the children’s work. I have a real heart for sharing God’s love, and my prayer is that God will be able to use me to help provide even more opportunities for children to be introduced to Jesus.
