Chaplaincy headshots jacquie and renate 2022 head shotJacquie Bignell & Renate Moerdijk

Jacquie and Renate are both parents at Trinity who have volunteered their time, gifts and talents to the Chaplaincy team faithfully over the past 3 years, and continue to do so! They work expertly together through their professional expertise in architecture (Jacquie) and design (Renate). They have worked faithfully, striving for excellence every step of the way on the new chapel build. Thanks to their vision, time and energy, Trinity is blessed to have a beautiful new Chapel, where students and staff are able to come for a time of quiet reflection, prayer and to learn about God through the Bible, and most importantly to receive and experience the love of God. 

Jacquie and Renate also work alongside the Chaplain to create the vision and inspiration behind Trinity's annual Prayer Space. Their love for Jesus is inspirational and they pour out their gifts and talents in service to Him, for which the whole school community is blessed by.

Students are encouraged not 'to seek their own interests but the interests of others'. Through a variety of initiatives, Marliee uses her creative gifts to encourage students to write letters, create a Book of Blessings and even make shortbread, Easter and Christmas treats for local residents at the Lavender Field Care Home. 

 

The Growing Hope Team

Chaplaincy growing hope teamWe are so thankful to Janet Phythian, Glenn Walsh and Pauline Mckecknie who are Trinity's Growing Hope Team! Each week students learn about the impact of climate change through the process of growing vegetables organically, and this is through the Trinity Service and Co-Curricular programmes each Wednesday.

 
Janet leads the team through her expertise in teaching 'Farming God's Way' principles to our students as they reflect on the impact of climate change, both locally and globally. Janet knows first hand the impact climate change has on poorer nations as she runs the Africa Naturally Farm in Mozambique. Janet is also a missionary through her work with Growing Hope in Mozambique and is supported by St Nicholas Church. 
 
Glenn is the Pastor of Vine Evangelical Church and is also one of Trinity's Sevenoaks Churches Educational Trust Directors. Glenn is passionate about sharing Jesus' love through the Growing Hope Programme, as Jesus taught so many parables about seeds! 
 
Pauline is a great friend of Trinity, a qualified Doctor in her former life but equally passionate about Jesus, creation, and the importance of the health benefits of being outdoors. 
 
Together they encourage, equip, teach, and bless our students. 
 
 
Christian Union Volunteers
 

Josh amottJosh Amott 

I remember being in a meeting about 10 years ago when someone mentioned this idea of opening a new secondary school in Sevenoaks founded on Christian values, it has been a real privilege to have seen this idea become reality. I work at a local Church as a Youth and Children's worker and as part of my role I love being able to come and spend time in some of our local schools. I am passionate about young people being able to grow up knowing their worth and value is not solely attached to the letters and numbers that end up on their exam papers, for our young people to have places where they can truly know belonging and understand a holistic approach to life. In my free time I'm a big Charlton Athletic fan and sometimes even manage to convince my wife to come with me to matches, we also love spending time with friends out and about in the wonderful countryside around us. We attend Bessel's Green Baptist Church where I also work and grew up, we love our Church family and hugely value the community that comes with being part of a Church.

 

We are also delighted that Jeeves and Ben come into Trinity to help run the Christian Union each week. They are passionate about growing young disciples. 

Jeeves manaktalaJeevs Manaktala

Sanjeev, or Jeevs, is an Elder at Hope Church Sevenoaks and has led youth work for over 10 years in different churches and charities. Additionally, he oversees the youth work across a network of churches called New Ground; in which he has the heart to help develop youth leaders to serve local churches and to continue to see the gospel being preached to the next generation! Jeevs is driven to disciple and raise up young people who are passionate about Christ and mission. He also works as a cyber security consultant to help bring security transformation across different sectors. Jeevs is married to his wonderful wife and has one beautiful boy; in his spare time he loves cooking and rugby.

Ben hazon

Ben Hazon

Fresh out of finishing his A-Levels, Ben is taking a year out to receive discipleship teaching, which includes 4 weeks away and a mission trip. A part of that discipleship means that he serves in a church placement, working 3 days a week at Hope Church Sevenoaks specialising in Tech & Media. This puts him in the perfect place to serve the Christian Union using what he is learning week to week to help grow the students in their faith!

He spends lots of time meeting up with other young people doing the same year. Otherwise he will either be developing his creative skills for photography and video editing or gaming!

 

The Food Bank Team
