Community Outreach Worker
Anke has joined the Riverbank team as a Community Outreach Worker, supporting the work we do in schools but also helping to run our Little Splashes and Little Droplets playgroups for single mums and their babies and small children. Anke completed her degree as a Primary school teacher in South-Africa, and subsequently moved to London to gain valuable teaching experience in various schools across London as a supply teacher. After a few years of teaching, she decided to enter the world of church ministry and joined the children’s ministry team at Holy Trinity Brompton as a 0-6s Pastor. She also had the immense privilege of being the head of the children’s ministry for 4 years. Anke is married to Nico, who is the Worship Pastor at Holy Trinity Church in Richmond and they have a young daughter.
Anke joined Riverbank because she loves working with children and their families. She believes that, “giving children the opportunity to know about Jesus and experience His love from a young age can make all the difference in their lives.”
