My name is Darren and I, along with Aaron, am the youth leader of the church while our current youth pastor is off on maternity leave!
Other than the youth work, I am a carer for adults with learning difficulties and have been doing this for 5 years now. I also have a sore knee, but I like to keep that one quiet.
I have a few favourite verses. Isaiah 40:31, which was the verse read at my baptism by my best friend, which will always mean a lot to me. There is also 1 Peter 5:7, which reads: “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you”. A short verse, but also a very powerful one, and is just a reminder that when we are feeling low, and anxious about anything, that God is always there for us, and he loves us.
I fell in love with Home Church and it’s people immediately after stepping foot in it. I may be biased, but it is honestly the best place. Filled with the most amazing people who have such a love for God. There is such a good range of ages and they all blend well together. The Home Church family were exactly what I needed last year, and not a day goes by where I am not thankful to God for bringing them into my life!
