Meet our Board of Trustees. They govern Youthscape as a registered charity. They also decide how we are organised and run to achieve our aims and ensure we are making a difference for young people.

Hi, I'm Matt, a church leader/youth worker in Hitchin, and the chair of the Board of Trustees.
I'm the Senior Pastor of Zeo Church which I lead alongside a wider speaking, training, coaching and writing ministry. Prior to this, I served for 18 years as CEO, and latterly President, of the youth and children's missionary movement, Urban Saints. I am passionate about releasing potential in people and organisations, with a particular commitment to see young people live God’s great adventure. I love meaty pizzas, Belgian Chocolate Haagen Daaz and great movies! I became chair of trustees in October 2019.
Hi, I lecture in Health and Social Care at the University of Bedfordshire, and I’m a Youthscape trustee.
I’ve got a strong interest in youth and young people’s transitions – I finished my PhD on the involvement of young people in the informal economy in 2016, and I now lecture on Health and Social Care at the University of Bedfordshire. I’m an Associate Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy, and as a teacher I encourage a student-centred approach to learning. My background is in Law, and I have a range of experience of supporting vulnerable people. I’ve worked for the Citizens Advice Bureau as a money adviser, as a volunteer advocate for people with learning disabilities, and I’m currently a volunteer money coach with Christians Against Poverty, in conjunction with Luton Christian Fellowship. I’m married and have two young children.
Hi, I’m a Non-Exec Director, a Chair of Governors of a Special Needs School, and a Youthscape Trustee.
I spent the last 15 years as an Executive Director in industry. Before that I served in the Royal Navy for nearly 25 years. I love strategy, planning and resources, and I am keen, over the years to come, to help Youthscape build on their great work making a massive difference to young people’s lives. Married to Rachel, with two younger sons at home, and two older boys now doing their own thing. Never far from the sea, we recently moved to Dartmouth in Devon, where we spend as much time as we can either on the water or in it!
Hi, I’m Tim, a Church of England priest and a trustee on the Youthscape board.
I’m the Director of Mission in the Diocese of St Albans, and a Residentiary Canon in the Cathedral. My family (my beautiful wife Kate and three wonderful children) and I live in St Albans with our black Labrador Max. I’m passionate about reimagining the Church’s role in God’s mission, exploring fresh expressions of church and encouraging growth through innovative, transformative missional worship. I’m a Fresh Expressions Associate, a consultant to the Church of England Liturgical Commission, and the author of Creating Missional Worship, which explores the meeting of Anglican liturgy with contemporary culture. I’m also a songwriter and visiting lecturer to colleges and conferences. When not working I love dog walks, gym sessions, family holidays and supporting Stoke City F.C.
Hi, I’m Andy, a Church of England vicar and a trustee on the Youthscape board.
After a long career in the tech and business industry I’m now a curate at St Mary’s Church in Luton. I studied Physics at university, more recently read Theology at St Mellitus College, London, and was ordained in 2016. I was part of Soul Survivor Watford Church since it began in 1993; the passion for youth work that started there has never left. I love seeing young people be the best that they can be, and I’m excited about continuing to bring my experience in both business and church leadership to Youthscape’s board. I’m married to Joanna, a teacher, and have two grown-up sons. When not working I love hill walking and scuba diving, but not both at the same time.
Hi, I'm Alice, I'm the Head of Mission at Christians Against Poverty (CAP) and a Trustee at Youthscape.
I live in Essex where I am also a wife to Andy, mum to a teenage girl and a 10 year old boy. In my parish, I'm on the leadership team of a missional community tackling isolation and loneliness, supporting women and families and sharing our faith in prayerful and practical ways. Prior to working for CAP, I was the Lead Tutor for Theology and Youth Ministry at St Mellitus College, training and forming youth ministers and equipping future church leaders for their role in advocating for young people at the heart of their community and churches.
I've been involved in youth work in a paid capacity for 20+ years – working in urban priority parishes in the North East; managing supported housing projects for young women; as a Diocesan Youth Officer in Chelmsford Diocese and as a Further Education Teacher. Alongside this, we've always run youth work in our own church as volunteers, usually meeting in our home and seeking to see faith formed in young people's lives through extended family. These decades of growing up in youth ministry inspired the subject of my 2018 MA dissertation on new monasticism and longevity in Christian youth work.
