Ben Butterfield

Under 18’s Worker

Ben’s job is to engage with young people, helping lead them towards faith in Jesus. He does this through a variety of ways, including spending two mornings a week in Blue Coat Academy, running three weekly youth groups, and organising youth trips away.

Though he’s known God from a young age, Ben is still passionate about getting to know Him better. Ben believes that God wants intimate relationships with all of us, and thinks that spending time with Jesus is simply unbeatable.

Ben is married to Isabel, and he is equal parts sensible-grandpa-figure (think gardening, newspapers, coffee) and crazy-big-kid (spontaneous trips to the beach, silly dancing, summer slip’n’slides). He likes to make stuff happen.
