Interviewing the youth leaders

How did you become a Christian?

John: My parents took me to church and brought me up as a

Christian, but I then made the decision for myself while at

university. In my last year I lived with a guy called Ed, who invited

me to his tiny Anglican church, which made me start going to

church again.

Emma: When I was 9, my dad died, and obviously that was

devastating. Later that year I went to a holiday club and they talked

about how if you died you went with Jesus to heaven. It made more

sense than my dad’s existence just stopping. They invited those who

wanted to become a Christian to come to the front, and I did.

How did you get into Youth Work?

Emma: I started work with kids when I was about 11, and did lots of

youth work as a student. I then went on to do an internship at

Glenwood Church, Cardiff, where I ended up working for a charity

there for 11 years.

Where do you see the youth at St Marys going in 2 years?

John: We’re passionate about making disciples and making disciple

makers. We don’t care about how the youth look, as long as they are

people following Jesus and bringing others along on the journey. We

feel that community and a serving community are really important,

and that everyone can use their individual gifts.

What is best about youth work?

Emma: Getting to know young people and seeing people do things

they didn’t know they could do.


As a youth group we have

decided to sponsor a 12 year old

boy named Brian from Uganda

t h r o u g h t h e c h a r i t y


Brian lives with his mother and

grandmother, and does jobs

such as running errands,

teaching his siblings at home

and buying and selling in the

market. For fun he likes playing

football with his friends, reading

and running.

He goes to Sunday school and

regularly participates in the

church choir. We will aim to

raise £25 per month to support

him, so please keep him in your


This month, Dan Owen

(member of the youth) had his

legs waxed to raise money to

support Brian, the grand total of

which was an impressive £72!
