Derby and South new Messy Regional Coordinator
Welcome to Ruth Attwood, your new Messy Church Regional Coordinator for Derby and South. Ruth is keen to communicate with all the Messy Churches registered in this region of Derbyshire to offer prayer support, communicate all things Messy and encourage them in their Messy mission!
Ruth is Coordinator at St Wystan's Messy Church in Repton. She says:
'Having taught geography in the London area, I moved to South Derbyshire when I got married and gradually became more involved in the local village church. Over the years I've helped with Sunday Club, trained as a licensed Reader and taken 'Open the Book' into two schools. In 2012 we started Messy Church. I enjoy taking opportunities to help adults and children learn (whether maths or Moses!) and particularly to share the good news about Jesus. It's been exciting to see new families coming to Messy Church and the encouragement this is to the wider church. Our two daughters are now adults – one living nearby and the other church planting in Bosnia.'
We would love to hear from you if you could consider joining Ruth as a Regional Coordinator in Derbyshire. We have Messy Churches needing support in the Peak District, Derby North East and Derby East. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
