Meet the Team!

Introducing Animate 19/20

Another year has begun here at Animate Youth Ministries. This year, we have 4 new Gap Year Team members who have moved into Lowe House, completed their period of induction, and begun to work with year 7’s from across the Archdiocese.

All 4 of our new team members are from the Archdiocese and can’t wait to share their faith with the young people we will work with over the course of this year.

This year’s Gap Year Team are:

Amy

My birthday is: 26th October
I am from: St. Peter’s, Warrington
My favourite piece of scripture is: 1 John 3:11
An interesting fact about me: I know all the words to the film Mean Girls from start to finish.
I joined the Animate team because: I want to deepen my own faith and be able to share it with young people.

Peter

My birthday is: 26th January
I am from: St. Wilfrid’s, Liverpool
My favourite piece of scripture is: Luke 23:40-43
An interesting fact about me: I’m the bassist in an Alt-Rock band called RIVIA.
I joined the Animate team because: My life took quite a ‘shocking turn’ a few months prior to joining, which gave me a lot of time to think about the rest of my life…I thought joining a catholic community, where my faith could grow and be supported would be a good next step to take.

Jonathon

My birthday is: 26th July
I am from: St. Teresa’s, Upholland
My favourite piece of scripture is: Jeremiah 29:11
An interesting fact about me: I once shared a meal with Gordon Ramsey
I joined the Animate team because: I feel like working with over 10,000 young people is going to be inspiring for me and to my faith and to be able to share that with the young people.

Ellie

My birthday is: 21st April
I am from: All Saints, Golborne
My favourite piece of scripture is: Psalm 46:1-2
An interesting fact about me: I’ve been in a bands music video
I joined the Animate team because: Since High School I have wanted to join the Animate Team. I would like to inspire other young people, just like I was. I want to explore, deepen my own faith and grow in confidence.

Returning to the Leadership Team are Sarah, Lauren and Tom along with Fr. Simon Gore who are looking forward to getting stuck back into work and seeing the Gap Year Team grow in faith and confidence throughout this year.

Please remember the team in your prayers throughout this year.
