Welcome Peter

My name is Peter Dawkins (otherwise known as Enoch). I am 18 and I have just started as the new youth worker here as part of Squarefish! I am doing a course in youthwork with SWYM just as Vicki did last year.

I grew up in a musical family so I have music in my blood. I play 7 instruments (Piano, Violin, guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, drums and harmonica) and I write and sing songs when I can. As part of my ministry here I hope to use music and worship to explore faith. I am also hoping to get involved in the music and worship in the church. I long to support musical worship in our services and I hope to stir up people's hearts for worshipping together with whole hearts.

I am also a dramatic person (not in the sense that I overreact about everything) having been in 5 school musicals, 2 primary school plays, 2 church based productions and many nativity plays, even playing the voice of God on one occasion! This is another thing God has gifted me with and if it is right and the opportunity arises I would really love to use my dramatic skills to explore the Christian faith.

My prayer for this year and for the years ahead is that I'd grow in love, faith and my relationship with God. My hope for this year is to see young people come to know Christ and get into a meaningful and life-giving relationship with Him.
