From CU Leader to TeamerPosted: 14 Mar 11 | By: NG Team
Hannah Parkinson is 19 years old, comes from Southport, and used to lead a New Generation group in her college. Now she’s based in Bristol where she’s on team with our South Team, and we decided to ask her what’s so good about being a Teamer. The main things a volunteer Teamer does at New Generation is support existing school groups, help get new groups running, and visit churches to spread ideas and introduce the concept.
Over to Hannah: “There are just too many amazing reasons to be a Teamer, which is why I love it so much! I love all the travelling all over, and seeing places I’ve never been to before. I’ve been to London, Cardiff, Canterbury and so many more cities I’d never seen. I’ve also had the opportunity to live in (and fall in love with!) Bristol. It’s basically my job to sit in classrooms and coffee shops and be encouraged by hearing stories about what young people are doing in their schools and then encourage them with some other stories about what others are doing. I’ve got to experience so many different kind of churches and learn how to worship in different ways. One of the best things has to be the amazing friends I’ve made from all over the world. Lastly, I love that within one week the Team felt like a family.”
