Staff team

People working together to make a difference

We believe our greatest asset as an organisation is our people. Most of our staff are based at our offices in Abingdon, while others - notably the Messy Church, Barnabas in Schools, The Gift of Years and Parenting for Faith teams - are based in different locations around the UK.
