We're delighted that Ben has started his role of Kids' & Youth Worker and is settling in nicely.

Ben has moved to Oxford for this role and we already really appreciate his energy and creativity for it. Ben is new to Emmanuel so we thought we'd ask a few questions so you can get to know him a little. Please do say hello to Ben when you get the chance!

Where will you be joining us from?

For the last 2 years I have been in Sutton Coldfield doing a church internship. This was a whole church internship so I get to experience the whole range of life working in a church, which was an Anglican church. For the last year or the internship, I spent a lot of my time helping with the youth work running a discipleship group and organising the church trip to Soul Survivor.

What attracted you to apply for the role?

For a long time, I have enjoyed working with kids and youth in various capacities. But during my internship I realised I loved working with children and youth. So, when is saw the advert for here and read it I couldn’t help but get excited. I had also been told Oxford was a nice city

What are you looking forward to most in Oxford?

Meeting people my own age! Getting stuck in with a church that I can call home.

How do you take your coffee?
