Hi there, I’m Heather who’s come to join the team at Barnsbury Parish as an apprentice youth and children worker through the diocese of London. I am originally from York and lived there until I went to an agricultural university in the west midlands to study animal management and welfare. I then had a bit of change of direction, and during a new wine festival one summer I really felt called to see what ministry work with young people and the community was like. This is when I started on a discipleship year and was placed in a small Church in Hainault. From there I moved onto an internship in Tollington Parish, just down the road. This is where I was able to cary on my learning and felt called to carry this on long term, which is how I came to be in Barnsbury. I really have a passion to see children and young people grow in their faith and to know the love of God. In my spare time I love to do lots of creative things like drawing and photography and also love exploring the outdoors and cooking. Really looking forward to getting to know the Church family in Barnsbury Parish, see you all soon.
