Hi I’m Rachel, and this blog is where you’ll find my personal updates on the Gospel ministry happening at Gaines Manor (check out gaines.org.uk for more info), a ministry of Camp XL. Gaines Manor is a residential youth centre near Worcester which runs group retreats and camps centered on God’s Word and trains the next generation of Bible Centered Youth Workers.

My role is as Events Manager, which currently involves looking after the bookings, activities and all things housekeeping, as well as receiving ministry training through the Midlands Gospel Partnership. I work alongside Ben (Director of Ministry), Joe (Estate Manager), Alice (Catering Manager), Neil (everything and anything else that needs to be done) and our gap year Thomas (all the way from Germany!) – you can check out more about them here.

I hope you enjoy reading about Gaines life, and will join in partnering with us in prayer.
