Becca Ambrose - Impact Team Leader, Scotland

Introducing Becca Ambrose

24th Oct 2017

Becca Ambrose has now started as the Impact Team Leader, based in Edinburgh. She is looking forward to all the challenges ahead and getting to know people. So we have quizzed her a little so we can get to know who she is!

Q: Tell us a little about you away from Urban Saints

I am the youngest of 6 kids and come from Surrey. I have been married for 7 years to Eliot, who has just got a job with Active Schools for Edinburgh Council. I love the Queen, a proper cup of tea and can’t stand bad grammar.

Q: What is your favourite food?

Spaghetti Bolognaise!

Q: How did you become a Christian?

Reluctantly (at first!) I went to Spring Harvest when I was a teenager and didn’t want to become a Christian. I left one venue as there was a bad Christian rap artist, so found myself somewhere, and there was a lady praying for me. She then had a word for me which was so accurate, that I realised I had to become a Christian! I haven’t regretted it since.

Q: What’s your favourite movie?

The Lord of the Rings trilogy, or The Martian (starring Matt Damon). Does the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice count?

Q: What’s your background in youth work and what connections do you have to Scotland?

I have done youth work for 10 years across three different churches, as well as for a couple of charities including one that worked with children who were excluded from school. I spent several of my childhood holidays on the Western Isles, and we own a cottage down near Stranraer.

Q: What is your favourite Bible passage or verse?

The Bible story I find most influential is the account of Esther. But my favourite verse(s) would be 2 Corinthians 3:16-18.

Q: What super power would you have if you could choose one?

To fly. Then I could fly easily to McDonalds!

We're delighted to welcome Becca to the Urban Saints team and are really excited to have her serving our local groups and volunteers in Scotland.
