Hi! I’m Caroline Bamford and I am the PJ’s project development worker for children and families. I will be working with St Paul’s, St Philip’s and St John & St James Churches and the local schools.
A bit about me
I live in Elton, Cheshire with my husband Ian and my daughter Freya. I spent my childhood and young adult life worshipping and growing in faith at St. John & St. James Church. My background is in archaeology, which has led me on a journey to having an interest in history, conservation and education. Previously, I worked as a Ranger on Festival Gardens in Liverpool liaising with visitors to the park, volunteers and schools of the local area. I also organised events for families and school children to participate in and learn how to enjoy their natural environment in a fun and exciting way!
I can reveal that our first PJs event will happen on Saturday 21st October from 4pm - 6pm!! It is a Messy Church ‘Pyjama Party’ at St Philip's Church! This is open to children of all ages and their families. We will have stories, games, crafts, and lots more. Come dressed in PJ’s, onesies or however you want! Dinner will be provided, and the event is free!
If you would like to get involved, we will be having two planning meetings leading up to this inaugural event:
Tuesday 26th September
Other PJs events are being planned and details of these will be given out very soon! If you would like to get involved in any way, great or small, please do contact me or come and talk to me when I am at your Church.
