Who are we?
“LOL Youth Ministry is a youth ministry for those in school years 6 to 13, overseen by two Durham City Churches working in partnership (King’s Church Durham and St John’s, Neville’s Cross). ‘LOL’ is an acronym for ‘Living out Love’ – referring to the love of God made known in Jesus and through the Holy Spirit; the love which inspires and empowers the ministry.”

My name is Abby Clark and I work full time as the children and youth worker for St John’s Church Neville’s Cross. For my role I co-ordinate the activities for children and young people on a Sunday morning, and our out-reach work in the primary schools and local community. I also have a role in leading/supporting all our LOL activities. When I am not working I enjoy walking in the countryside, and spending time with my family.
