My name is Lauren Baxendale. I have worked for the Circuit since 2012 as a part time youth worker. My time is currently spent between two Circuit Churches where I work with young people ageing from 10-18yrs. I run a youth club on Thursday evenings at Berkswich Methodist Church and I run two clubs on a Friday evening for junior and senior members at Gnosall Methodist Church. I am passionate about getting to know young people and helping them to explore their aspirations. In my spare time, I enjoy keeping active by walking and playing badminton. I also love coffee and cake with friends.
