Profile of Frankie Walsh >>
Jaqueline Atkinson started her Unlock work as an Unlock Worker, based on the Town End Farm Estate in Sunderland, at the beginning of March 2015. She has now come to the end of her time working for Unlockand we wish her well in her new roleas Children and Families Missioner for Newcastle Diocese. Local people are carrying on with the groups that Jacqueline encouraged and developed.
Jacqueline was based at the dissused and decommissioned church of St Bede's, at the heart of the estate, where she facilitated the local community association in creating a chapel and provided regular short times of reflection. In a community that 'doesn't do church' Jacqueline established a holiday club, a local community choir and a packed out Christingle service. From September 2017 her work included FAB (Faith at Bedes) which runs for most of the day on Fridays including work with young parents and carers, an after school club for 5-11 year olds and a Bible study group.
