Nicky is our community projects co-ordinator, who together with our local church families connects with the local community to understand how we can practically support established works (with other local agencies) and how we can pioneer new activity that enables individuals & families to thrive.

It’s a real adventure living for Jesus- 7 years ago I was establishing new food brands into supermarkets and today I get to see what God is passionate about
in the local community and establish those new and exciting ideas & projects that have way more shelf life and impact than anything else I have in involved with!
