What is Roots and who is it for?

Roots is the best way to begin the weekend! It’s a great place for young people (Junior school years 3-6) to make friends, play games, take part in activities and learn about Jesus from the Bible.

What happens at Roots?

We usually begin by having a head-2-head challenge game that’s lots of fun! Then we gather together and learn about the good news of Jesus from the Bible. Afterwards, we head into the main hall, where there are big games and activities to do. We then finish off the evening with some hot chocolate and a chat!

When and where is Roots?

We start at 6:30pm and finish at 7:45pm every Friday night (except during school holidays).
We meet at Aigburth Parish Hall on Dundonald Road, L17 0AE.

What does it cost?

Absolutely nothing! It’s free!

Who are the leaders?

Jon Cornish

Jon is originally from South London (pronounced ‘Saff Lundun’) so naturally is a Man Utd fan. He blames poor parenting and a love of David Beckham for this decision.  Jon studied Modern History and Politics at the University of Southampton and after graduating moved to Aigburth for a year to work as a trainee at the church. Jon is now kept busy working at a Marketing agency.

When he’s not annoying half of Liverpool with his geographically stupid support of MUFC, Jon enjoys reading, playing football (badly), cricket (worse), and pretty much anything that involves exercise or competition.

Sarah Gunn

Sarah grew up in Oxford, then studied maths at university. After graduating in summer 2013, she moved to Aigburth to be a Ministry Trainee here. She liked Aigburth so much that she stuck around and now works for a software company nearby. In her spare time, Sarah enjoys baking, board games and playing the bassoon.

Grace Palframan

Grace is a 15 year old Christian, who has grown/is growing up in Aigburth Community Church. She is currently doing her GCSEs in a local Secondary school. Grace enjoys art, music and spending time with people.
