Friendship evangelism and family are at the heart of everything she puts her energies into. She has a passion for connecting church to the local community.

Rachel Allcock
Administrator
Rachel is our administrator here at Activate, so it is likely that she is the face behind the email! With a background in teaching and a pre-children two-year stint in Canada, Rachel has very much enjoyed settling into village life in Longton as a stay-at-home mum to three children aged 3, 6 and 8. She has remained sane by getting out of the house and involving herself in the local community. Five years ago, she started up a Mums and Tots group through her church, and the connections that she has made through the group still shape her interactions and activities. Involved in several small groups both within and outside of church, Rachel has a passion to see women connect and enjoy honest relationships - especially if coffee shops, sale rails, traybakes and anything retro can be incorporated into the event!
Sarah Jones
Sarah is a dynamic, uplifting speaker who challenges, inspires and motivates people towards God. She is an ordained Elim minister and is Assistant Pastor at Father's House Elim in Lancaster. She is a member of our Activate Dream Team and heads up our Miss Activate community of 14-18 year olds. At her church she leads the outreach ministry and is involved in general pastoral ministry.
Bekah Legg
Bekah is PR and Media Manager for Compassion UK and editor of Liberti magazine. Driven by the belief that God’s intention is to see his people live free from abuse, prejudice and the confines of poverty, she is passionate about helping people realise their God given potential. At home she is kept on her toes by five teenage girls and a husband, who occasionally dices with death by singing ‘The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow’ when he thinks she looks like she’s at the end of her tether; it rarely helps.
