Testimonial

Ali played key role helping us organise our Minister’s Spring School, having someone work with us on theme and content was a huge help, especially when asking those awkward questions about why we’re doing what we do!  I’d recommend using Ali for two reasons; he’s good at what he does and having a voice from outside your context is really valuable.

We love working with Ali.  He has been an instrumental part of the development of our Key Stage 1 & 2 collective worship resources, now used across the country in primary schools.  Ali’s expertise and advice has been invaluable in developing the resources and he has helped write a large number of resources bringing creativity, wisdom and the experience of years working in education and youth / children’s work.  We love having him as part of our extended freelance team and would highly commend him to others working in this area in need of consultancy, training and resources.

Luke Aylen, Creative Co-Ordinator // Spring Harvest

Ali led a session on Rural Youth Ministry and Schools – Based Youth Work with our undergraduates which was inspiring, engaging and challenging.  All the students gave very positive feedback and I would have no hesitation in recommending Ali’s training to anyone looking to deepen their youth ministry practice and learn new skills and ideas.

Alice Smith, Lead Tutor Theology and Youth Ministry // St Mellitus College

Ali’s “Worship that Works” session is not to be missed!  All those who attended recently were highly motivated, enthusiastic and keen to go away and implement their own approaches to his thoughts and ideas.  His presentation makes you want to keep going back for more.

Mandy Watson, Senior School Improvement Advisor // Chichester Diocese

On behalf of everyone who attended the CMD day, I would like to thank you very warmly for everything you gave us in order to help us think creatively about the nature of our ministry to children and young people.  All the feedback I’ve received has been overwhelmingly positive.

Rev’d. Dr. Ainsley Griffiths // St David’s Diocese

Ali brings a wealth of experience to his training.  His passion and creativity for working amongst children and young people is inspiring.  We’re engaging in an outrageous vision here in Birmingham and Ali was just what we needed at the beginning of ur adventure.

Ruth Hassall, Assistant Director of Mission // Birmingham Diocese

I know few more passionate, committed and insightful people than Ali.  His vast experience across the world of youth and children’s ministry and depth of knowledge of the needs of leaders means Ali is an invaluable resource for the Church.

Phil Knox, Director of Evangelism and Leadership // Youth for Christ

Ali came to lead the teaching for our 11 – 18s youth group weekend away.  The programme Ali put together was thought provoking, engaging and skilfully provided an environment where both young and old in the group could respond in their own way.  We highly recommend Ali to other groups.

Pete Sheath, Children’s, Youth and Families Minister // Guildford

Thanks for leading an excellent session for Eastbourne Street Pastors on youth culture.  It was up to date, informative, interactive and fun as well as being packed with useful and practical tips.  A real eye opener that will help us really engage with young people today.

Sandy Medway, Street Pastors Co-Ordinator // Eastbourne

Brilliant training day – friendly, fun and informative.  Thank you.  I didn’t realise just how much I didn’t know.
