Jesus saves people who think they don’t need him. That’s what he did in my life when I was a teenager growing up in Swansea.

I’d started going along to a church youth group, and the more I came to know Jesus, the more I realised I wasn’t fine “just as I am”, but that I needed a saviour to bring me close to the God that made me. My faith came to grow more and more at university; I realised that Jesus was saving others and I could be a part of that.

Before joining the staff team at the Globe Church, I worked for UCCF for a number of years as a Christian Union Staff Worker and events coordinator. It was a privilege to share Jesus alongside students, showing them where hope, truth and life to the full are found. My job at Globe involves keeping the church running administratively, but also thinking about the bigger picture of how we become a more established church with sustainable rhythms of church life. In any one week it might mean managing databases, sending emails, finding venues or meeting up with members of the church family to see how they’re doing.

I’m a seaside lover that somehow ended up living in London. Joyful parts of my life include videos of my nephew singing nursery rhymes and watching my houseplants grow. I love red velvet cake and chatting the big and small things of life with friends.
