Hi, I’m Jen and I grew up in Westminster as part of a Jamaican Family and I’ve been part of West Kilburn Baptist Church since the age of three. In 1997 and 2002 I attended Bible College for training in teaching the Bible within a multi-cultural environment, with an emphasis on young people. Currently my main responsibilities are the running of the youth clubs based at the church.
