A Huddersfield church has welcomed a new family worker to its congregation.
New North Road Baptist Church has appointed Rhona Knight as its new trainee Children and Family worker.
Rhona will be leading the work in the church with children and their families while training with CYM (Institute for Children and Youth Mission) based in Nottingham.
The CYM centre serves the Midlands and the North in providing degree-level professional training in Christian family ministry and youth ministry.
Students work within placement churches either as volunteers or part-time workers.
Rhona, lives in Huddersfield with her husband and two young boys and is currently a member of an Anglican church, but was previously baptised and active in a Baptist church in her native Glasgow.
Now she will become a member at New North Road and work with the church for the three years of her CYM training.
She will be involved in Junior Church, in Messy Church and in new initiatives to support family life.
The post was advertised nationally, and the advert was spotted by Rhona’s husband who persuaded Rhona that it was just right for her. The family lives less than two miles from the church.
Rhona began at New North Road at the beginning of this month and is due to start her degree course shortly.
