Family missioner


My name is Rebecca Wilson, but do call me Becca or I will think I am in trouble. I am very excited to
begin the role as Family Missioner here at St John's. I have been attending Tots at Church and Teatime Praise for a while now and have been made to feel immediately at home. I look forward to the challenges of the Mission Action Plan: raising up the next generation and helping to grow a new congregation is quite a challenge! It is a comfort to know that the whole church is behind the mission and praying for the future of St John's.

Here is a little about me to help you get to know me. I became a Christian on a Scripture Union camp aged 15 and was baptised at 19 whilst I was at University in Lincoln, gaining my degree in Heritage Studies. I met my husband James in Lincoln, and we did an Alpha Course together. We got married in 2002 and moved to Royston in 2006.

I worked in the heritage, museum, events and travel industries in the years prior to the arrival of our two boys, Eli and Kit. I also spent many years volunteering on summer holidays camps with Scripture Union, and helping out with youth work at various churches.
When not working as Family Missioner I am looking after my young family, reading, sewing, (ask me about my experience learning to crochet if you have five minutes and could do with a laugh), cooking (useful as my breastfed baby has been put on a dairy and soya free diet – any dairy and soya free recipes, sweet or savoury, are gratefully received), walking and visiting heritage sites across the country. I also love cats and am owned by one myself. His name is Finn.

I am really excited to be part of this congregation and look forward to meeting you all. Initially my working hours will be Tuesday and Thursday all day, most Sunday mornings, Teatime Praise and a few hours in addition to be used when needed, so I can be available at other times.
