Meet our new Childrens’and Families’ Development Worker!
We’re thrilled that Jen Watson joined us as our new Children’s & Families’ Development Worker on the 5th June. Jen is a born and bred Bedworth girl, and as a mum of three young children herself has a clear understanding of what sort of outreach families need and respond to.
She and her husband have been devoted members of Life Church in Bedworth over the past five or so years, where Jen has helped run various kids’ activities, as well as set up her own parents’ social group. She is full of enthusiasm and we are sure that she will do great things for us here in Exhall, in what is a brand new faith-based role intended primarily to answer needs in the wider community.
Her initial 7-8 weeks in post will be to meet people, find out what precisely the needs in this parish are, how we could (better) meet those needs and do some planning, after which we hope that activities will start to roll out in September. Most if not all of the activities will be around our existing services rather than in them, but some reviewing of our current provision for families in our 9.30 and 11.30 services is very likely too.
We know you will join us in continuing to welcome Jen warmly and give her as much help as we can to help her role take off!
