We are delighted to announce Rachel Scheffer as the new Messy Church Regional Coordinator for the North East: Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland. Rachel is Priest in Charge of the parishes Stamfordham, Matfen and Ryal. She is also the Diocesan Development Officer for Children and Youth work in the Diocese of Newcastle.

Rachel says, 'I have been involved in ecumenical Messy Churches and also Messy Churches that are part of just one church. In my diocesan role, I promote and support Messy Churches in the North East, visit churches to help start up a Messy Church and arrange Messy Church Meet-Ups, and I organised Messy Church Goes Large and Messy Church Does Science at the Cathedral. I am really looking forward to seeing what the Regional Coordinator role involves and I have already started creating Pinterest boards for different Messy Church sessions and a Messy Church North East - Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland Facebook group. I hope you request to join and be part of building a Messy network across the North East.'
