Appointment of Children and Youth Development Worker


The United Free Church Youth Committee is delighted to announce the appointment of Richard Knott as the UF Church’s Children and Youth Development Worker.  Richard will take up this full-time appointment on 5th January.  Since June 2007 he has been Divisional Children’s Officer with the Salvation Army working in the west of Scotland and prior to that he worked with Scripture Union as a Schools Worker.  He comes with considerable experience and is looking forward to getting to know the UF Church and assisting us in developing work with children and young people in congregations and across the denomination.  Richard is married and lives in Edinburgh.   


We are also pleased to announce that for the next year, Andrew Brown from Darnley UF will be working alongside Richard on the equivalent of a one day per week basis.  Andrew is part-time worker in the Cathcart Youth Ministry Partnership on the south-side of Glasgow.  He will be able to help Richard get to know the UF Church and gain further experience through working with him.
