Meet the Team

Nick Blanch

Director
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.

Paul Roast

Schools Worker
Paul is our dedicated schools worker and is responsible for all our major schools projects, including The Anti-Bullying Roadshow, Easter Uncovered and Prayer Spaces. Paul is a gifted worship leader, engaging story teller and supports Luton Town. Never-mind, we still love him.

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!

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 Marlow

Youthworker - Poringland and Brundall
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!

Dave Cossey

Youth Worker - Bramerton
Dave runs various clubs and schools work in the Bramerton area as a partnership project with Bramerton Youth R Us (BYRUS) which is part of a parish of 11 churches! Locations include Surlingham, Thurton and Rockwell St Mary's. Dave has spent the last 5 years in China and subsequently is amazing at cooking Chinese food - so the rest of the team are always trying to get invited to his for tea!

Rupert Appleton

Student Youthworker (Meadow Way Chapel)
Rupert is currently studying youthwork at CYM, Ridley Hall. His placement is with Meadow Way Chapel, overseen by NYFC. Rupert is involved in all aspects of the church's youth group and runs a weekly lunchclub at Hellesdon High School. A keen sportsman and lover of shorts in winter, Rupert is from 'Royal' Tunbridge Wells but sometimes pretends he has a London accent.

Becca Savory

Office Manager
Part of the dyanmic duo that oversee all things administration and keep all the youth workers in good order. Becca is meticulous, efficient and great with funding. She's a real prayer warrior and another clean freak – Fliss and Becca's shared desk is always the most tidy!

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.
