es-team East and Newhaven Church Youth & Children's Worker
As es-team East worker I am responsible for the schools designated east Edinburgh. This includes helping volunteers to be able to run their SU Groups, helping new SU Groups to begin, and taking assembly and RME lessons at the invitation of schools. I am also involved in regional events and SU Holidays.
The schools designated as East Edinburgh are:
Portobello High School*
Pilrig Park School,
Prospect Bank School
Bun-sgoil Taobh na Pàirce (The Park School)
*and associated primary schools
I also work as the youth and children’s worker for Newhaven Church. At Newhaven I coordinate, plan, and participate in the running of Sunday groups; family services; children’s addresses, outreach, and things generally relevant to P1-S6 to help them grow in their relationship with God, alongside a team of volunteers. It has been great to see where the two aspects of my role overlap, such as the Chatterboxes SU Group, run by Newhaven church volunteers, at one of the local primary schools.
If there is anything I can do to support your school or church in east Edinburgh or you would like to get involved, please feel free to contact me.
