Development Practitioner Helen Crisp

I have worked supporting people for many years enjoying community work and bringing people together. I am really passionate about my work at St Francis Church Bournville and hope I can create welcoming environments for people who may find it daunting to come into the space.  I enjoy chatting and getting to know people, and connecting up like-minded people. Please feel free to drop in or get in contact with me – I also make amazing hot drinks!!!
