Mrs Melvina (Mel) Brown will join us on Monday 18th September as our first, fulltime, Family & Youth Worker. This meets the top concern from our Healthy Churches review that called for our work with children, young people and families to be a priority that must be resourced.
Reporting to our minister Rev. Helen Kirk, her job description calls on Mel to work in partnership with the minister, leaders and wider church membership. The key aim is to help increase the engagement, involvement, spiritual and 'whole person development' of the growing number of families and children of varying ages who are attracted to AMC. Mel said, "Supporting young people and their families in their Christian journey is something that I am very passionate about."
Mel has extensive experience in this field and her qualifications include a Master's Degree in Youth and Missions from Cliff College. This is a three-year appointment and we look forward to welcoming her into our church family.
