Community Outreach Worker
Anke is one of our Community Outreach Workers, helping to run our Little Splashes and Little Droplets playgroups for single mums and their babies and small children as well as other groups and activities for parents and all the family. 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. She then entered 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.”
