Youth Ministry Team

Cameron Thaws

I’ve pretty much always been a Christian. Even when my parents weren’t, my grandparents were. My favourite animal is the emperor penguin. My most embarrassing story is unfortunately not suitable for reading.


Tim Jackson

I was born and raised in Bristol, and in a Christian home. Although I always had some sort of faith for as long as I can remember, I made the decision to follow Jesus at age fourteen. After school I attended bible college for three years, and have worked in the church since, and have been involved in various departments. This includes Carmel’s Youth Group, which I’ve been involved with since the age of fifteen.


Angela Francis (Soon to be Jackson!)

I was born in Karachi, Pakistan and came to England when I was 11 years old. I was brought up in a Christian family and made a decision to live for Jesus very early in my life. At my first youth camp I received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and a few years later it was at youth camp where I found out my calling for evangelism which lead me to attend Carmel Bible College; I studied there for 3 years. I’m currently in university studying computer science and serving in the church. I have a desire to serve in the youth ministry as I know the impact it had on my life and I aspire to help other young people experience God the same way I have.


Grace Broom

I was born and have been raised in Bristol and I am currently studying Graphics, Health, and Social Care & Business at St Brendan’s Sixth Form College. I have been attending Carmel City Church for 9 years now. I came to be a Christian when I was 7 in a youth group that I was attending at the time. However, I recommitted a few years later at my first youth camp in 2012. I enjoy making friends, being sociable and assisting leaders in activities. My favourite animal is: a horse My most embarrassing moment: when I was younger I always wanted to be a horse when I grew up and would give my brother ‘horse rides’  around the living room.


Matthew Lewis

I’ve been a member of Carmel’s youth ministry since I was 12! I was filled with the Holy Spirit during a St Revolution meeting, and baptised at youth camp.
I’ve seen first hand that when young people are given a safe place to encounter God, it changes lives. It changed mine.


Tiffany Chikwanah

I currently served on the team as the worship leader.
I’ve grown up in Church, so I came to faith at quite a young age.
I’m not an animal person at all, so I don’t have a favourite one.
I’m not easily embarrassed either, so I have no most embarrassing moment.
