Children & Young people






 Penny Carrier  is our Leader of Children, Families and Youth Ministry.

Penny retired from her job at BT, where she had worked for 39 years, doing a variety of roles ranging from a call centre team manager to a digital media learning and development specialist.  In search of something new, she applied for the St Paul’s role – at the church where she has worshipped for over 10 years.

“During this time, I’ve been involved in Young Church and in setting up and leading a worship band,” she explained. I’m passionate about young people and excited about continuing the ministry among children, families and youth, both at St Pauls and in our local community.’’

Penny, who lives in Compton Acres, is a stalwart member of the well-known local choir, West Bridgford Social Singers, and a founder member of the singing group The Bling Singers. “I’m very interested in music and hopefully that will come in useful within my role,” she added. “I really want to serve and support our volunteers who are providing for our young people,” she added. “I’m hoping over the next few years we’ll have great fun together and grow in our relationships with each other and God.”

Look out for Penny at St Paul’s, Toddlers, Young Church, all-age services, special events and in the local schools where she has already taken part in Harvest Assemblies where, it is rumoured, she was disguised as a carrot!
