Meet The Team

Easter Camp includes a mix of class taught individuals, Christian Science Sunday School students, Mother Church members and branch church members. The Easter Camp 2021 Committee members come from an array of different background, but are all currently practicing Christian Scientists.
You can find out more about all the members of the commitee below.

Anna
 
Hello, my name is Anna! I work as an admin assistant and I am also a university student from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. I attended Christian Science Sunday School growing up, which I feel has given me a solid foundation in my understanding in Christian Science, but also feel there is so much more to learn and explore! At the moment, I especially love to study the Christian Science Bible Lesson along with apps such as Blue Letter Bible to dig deep. 
 
I came to Easter Camp for the first time as a young teen and have enjoyed being a camper, and more recently an organiser, almost every year since! Spiritually based discussions and activities that I have taken part in at Easter Camp have been particularly helpful to me in expanding my understanding. I have also made many wonderful friends at Easter Camp and enjoy learning from and discussing ideas with them! I hope that Easter Camp will help to inspire other young people and provide an environment in which they can explore ideas and find inspiration too!
 

Hannah

Hi! I’m Hannah and I’m so excited to be part of the 2021 Easter Camp committee!
I’ve been raised in Christian Science, having attended Sunday School my whole childhood. I am a Nanny, so I teach and look after children as an occupation, which makes me so excited to share CS with the younger generation.

I have been attending Easter Camp since I was 8 years old!! I have always loved being able to come together with other Christian Scientists of my age, as my family have always been the only children at my church. Making Christian Scientist friends my own age was such an important stage to help me develop in my own Christian Science, and I hope being on the committee this year I can help bring more people together. I can’t wait to see you there! 🙂

Sam
 
Hi! My name is Sam, and I am part of the 2021 Easter Camp committee. I have grown up with Christian Science, and the lessons I have learned from both Sunday School and later on congregational attendance I have been able to apply to everyday life. I am a musician by occupation, and the virtues of patience and commitment taught by Jesus and Mrs Eddy have always helped me through the various trials and tribulations that can be a part of my work. 
 
I started to attend Easter Camp at the age of 12, and It was a truly comforting experience knowing I wasn’t the only child who went to a Christian Science church! Since then, I have made lifelong friends and made unforgettable memories. Divine love is heavily present at Easter Camp, and you will always feel accepted, loved and respected no matter who you are and what your background is. I hope to see you there at Easter Camp 2021! 
 

Holly

Hi! I’m Holly and I am so excited to be on the Easter camp committee for the first time! I have been attending Easter camp since my early teens and I have attended other CS camps since I was 13. I believe it is so important to reach out to the younger generation of Christian scientists and Easter camp is the perfect opportunity to connect in Christian Science with people your own age!

I have been attending Sunday school since I was about a month old, with a lot of the churches I have attended being fairly small. I have found that camps like Easter camp really give young people the opportunity to express any questions or share their own experiences with people their own age who have probably gone through the same things. I hope being on the committee will help others have the same experiences I’ve had! See you soon!

Louis

Hi! My name is Louis. I’m 18 yrs old, and I’ve just finished my second year of 6th form. Next year I’m hoping to go to University to study Maths and Computer Science. I have grown up in a Chrstian Science household and while I loved going to Sunday School every week, I found that, coming from a church with just my siblings, it was hard for me to find other people to make friends with within the movement.

Coming to Easter Camp and seeing other kids who were Christian Scientists was huge! Many years later, I felt this year was my oppurtunity to give back to Easter Camp. Easter Camp had such an impact on my personal, and Christian Science development throughout my life, and I am looking forward to help bring that to more people.

Tim

Although I’m a lifelong Christian Scientist, I only attended my first Easter Camp two years ago in North Wales. I wasn’t sure what to expect but found it to be such a fun and uplifting experience. In fact my wife and I loved it so much that we became involved in organising the 2019 camp in the Lake District, where we are members of the Windermere branch church.

I would definitely recommend Easter Camp for its fun, informal, family-orientated atmosphere. It’s a great opportunity to meet other like-minded people and learn a bit more about Christian Science.

Sue

Hi, my name is Sue and I live in Derbyshire and attend the Christian Science Society in Derby. I’ve been coming to Easter Camp almost every year since 2004, and I’m delighted to be on the committee again this year.
Although I was brought up attending a Christian Science Sunday School, I didn’t really grasp it until adulthood, following many wayward years away from CS. After a gradual return to study and church as a wife and mother, and a complete healing of severe depression, I heard about Easter Camp.

Originally I attended with just my eldest son, then both sons and my husband have joined us too since 2008. Easter Camp is definitely a family priority in our diary!
Over those years, we’ve watched teenagers become adults and return as parents, and we’ve become great friends with many campers. Easter Camp changed my relationship with Christian Science to a far more expansive viewpoint, and wherever camp is, it always feels like coming home.

Soozi

I was brought up as a Christian Scientist going to Sunday school in London. As a teenager, I decided to turn my back on all I had learnt in CS and do my own thing.
A few years later, at Art college I had anorexia, and found that turning back to the truths I had learnt resulted in a complete healing. Since then I have never looked back. I have been an active church member, married a Christian Scientist and am bringing up two sons in Science. I now live in Devon and am a member of Exeter church.

For me Easter Camp is a time for sharing ideas in an informal atmosphere. After attending for a few years I felt it would be great to be able to give something back.
Along the way I have made some very special life long friends.

Jonathan

Hi, I’m Jonathan and I live in East Sussex.

Mary Baker Eddy writes in her book Science & Health: “Trials are proofs of God’s care.” And so through challenges ranging from finding home, employment, supply, marriage and subsequent bereavement and loss, I have found a growing understanding of Christian Science to be an anchor and a staff upon which to lean.

I discovered Easter Camp in the late ‘80’s, and was pleasantly surprised to find so many young people there. I have attended EC intermittently over the years since as work and personal circumstances have allowed. Having not attended for some time I was persuaded by a friend to join the EC committee in planning for EC 2019 at Windermere. This was a joyful, harmonious and soul-filled time and I decided to stay on the committee to help make EC 2021 just as good!
