Meet the Team

Nick Blanch

Nick leads the overall direction, vision and strategy of NYFC, while managing his excellent staff! Nick is a speaker, dreamer, writer of silly scripts and makes a good cup of tea. He doesn't like coffee, so his coffee making skills are pathetic.

Sarah Ballard

Music Youth Worker
Sarah is responsible for our mobile recording studio, Tracks. Sarah also runs music groups in schools, mentors young people and works with Ben on our music youth group, The Jam. Sarah has a background in community choirs and loves seeing how God uses music in others lives. She is also our master baker - very handy at birthdays!

Fliss Jones

Office Manager
Part of the dyanmic duo that oversee all things administration and keep all the youth workers in good order. Fliss has been a part of NYFC since the dawn of time and yet still looks young! She is a passionate worship leader with a strong pastoral spirit and an obsessive love for hygiene.

Ben Lawrence

Media Youthworker
Ben is our media mogul and is responsible for our YouTube projects, design work and oversee's our band 'Storehouse'. he also works with Sarah on our music youth group, The Jam. Ben enjoys throwing crazy ideas at Nick and sitting in coffee shops to 'people watch'. Yes, that is an actual pastime and we all think it's a bit weird.

Emmi Ward

Youthworker - Poringland & Bramerton
Emmi runs youth cafes across Poringland and Brundall, mentors young people and does a bit of detached work too. A former art student, she is quirky, fun and an avid board gamer!

Abi Walter-Browne

Student Youthworker (Taverham Evangelical Church)
Abi is currently studying youthwork at Moorlands Theological College. Her placement is with Taverham Evangelical Church, overseen by NYFC. Abi is involved in all aspects of the church's youth group and will be developing links in the community. A positive thinker, organised and reliable, Abi is always willing to have a go at anything including experimenting with her hair styles!

Gemma Stapleford

Student Youthworker - Meadow Way Chapel, Hellesdon
Gemma is a student youthworker with her placement at Meadow Way Chapel and overseen by NYFC. Gemma is involved in all aspects of the church's youth group and runs a weekly lunchclub at Hellesdon High School. She is talented in art and sport and loves to bring a sense of fun to the team by being a banter queen.

Archie Horrox

Sound Engineer / Youthworker
Archie is part of our Tracks project, as a fully qualified sound engineer. He does all our mixing and mastering as well as engaging with young people and helping them to understand sound engineering. Archie likes wearing skinny jeans, listening to music (obviously!) and having hair like Justin Bieber.
