    About me

    I finished my degree as an early childhood/primary teacher in 2016 and since then I had been working over the last year in a childcare centre, which I loved. I enjoy spending my time drinking tea, going on picnics, visiting the monthly Olive tree markets and strolling along the beaches of Newcastle. I enjoy collecting DVD's and watching TV shows. I recently got engaged to an amazing man Tim who is a physio and works for his company. He also loves God and strives to serve Jesus in every aspect of his life. I live in shared housing along with my best friend and two other girls. It has been so encouraging doing life with them. I grew up in a christian family. I am so thankful to my parents who taught my brothers and myself about Jesus.

    About my Apprenticeship

    Over the two years I will be involved in women and children's ministry and working alongside my trainer Jenny Jeffreys. My working week is around 40hours of ministry which involves one to one meet ups with lovely women from my church. I am overseeing maturity at uni church which involves supporting growth group leaders and L2's. I lead an all girls Uni Church group Tuesday nights with my co-leader Keisha. I am apart of an AM congregation bible study Thursday mornings and I am the coordinator for the AM Kids Sunday School Program called Sprout. I attend walk-up at the uni grounds on Tuesdays 12-1pm which involves talking to uni students about Jesus and the gospel.
