We’re delighted to announce that Tim Broadbent has been appointed as part-time Youth Minister. This is a twelve-month appointment initially but we are seeking further funding to secure a longer term.
For the last three years Tim has been Church and Community Youth Worker at Oasis Church, at Waterloo. He has recently completed a Master's Degree in Youth Ministry and Theology at King's College, London. We were especially impressed with Tim's ability to grow youth ministries from small beginnings and his ability to relate to a wide range of people, including volunteers and young people from varied backgrounds.
Tim is a passionate fan of Crystal Palace. In addition to football, he enjoys cycling, films and even DIY. He is married to Hannah, who is a PhD research student and they live in Kennington. He tells us that he enjoys young people because of their humour, originality, faith and general approach to life.
This appointment is a big step for St Mary's and fulfils one of the remaining goals of our current Mission Action Plan. We really look forward to getting to know Tim and Hannah and to seeing our young people's work grow.
