Bridge Builders Christian Trust currently employs 6 part time staff.  Not only are we supported by a team of 20 volunteers who give their time, skills and resources each year, but also over 100 volunteers from partnering churches support our projects around town to ensure that all of our projects are delivered to the highest standard.

Jo Simson & Matt Chris Simson

Jo & Chris are volunteers on an assembly team. The pictures show them just after a "performance" and the reason why they do it? Here is what Jo said:

"As a Christian and keen amateur Thespian, I was very attracted when an invitation from Bridge Builders Christian Trust came out of the blue to join the Assembly Drama Tour. I’d always wanted to go ‘on the road’ with something dramatic, and I loved working with children.  That was back in 2005. Still here, now involved in writing as well as performing, and when my husband retired last year I brought him on board, too."

and Chris, why do you volunteer for Bridge Builders?

"I enjoy having the opportunity to bring the love of Jesus to children through drama.  Most are gratifyingly responsive to our message.  I feel it’s a privilege to be able to do this – and fun."
