My name is Catherine Goodsell and I am a Youth and Children’s Intern at St Jude’s Church Southsea. This summer, myself and other leaders are joining some young people from our church to go to Soul Survivor on Week B (12th-16th August).

If this is something you might be interested in doing together, don’t hesitate to contact me.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
