We are excited to welcome Karen Turnbull onto our team as our new Area & Schools Worker. Karen brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm which we are excited to see what God can do with!
Karen started in youth work as a volunteer at 16, went on to train at St Martins Lancaster, as a youth and community worker, starting her first paid job for a group of Churches in Kent. Karen says that "14 years later I am still loving the work God has called me to!"
She has been married to husband Rob for five years and has a small dog called Atom. She says she is welded to twitter and instagram, enjoys photography, blogging and anything geeky!
Integrate YFC has come together with churches in Diss to set up and open a youth cafe for the young people of Diss and surrounding areas.
There was a great turn out to our recent volunteers and supporters brunch. We spent time sharing what we were doing at each of the groups and praying for the work in various areas.
It was great to have around 13 churches represented, especially all the church leaders that came.
Oh... and we ate lots of bacon butties, pain au chocolat and chocolate twists!
We are pleased to be working with volunteers from Burston Churches to run a new youth cafe for school years 7-9 in Burston. The cafe launched on the 13th September and will be open every Thursday during term time between 3:45pm and 5:15pm in St Mary's church.
