Emma is the Missional Community Development Worker at Manningham Uniting Church (MUC). Her role is to encourage and resource contextual exploration and understanding of being a missional church, using an Asset Based Community Development Approach.
This involves developing and fostering relationships and partnerships with the local community of Manningham and beyond, encouraging and equipping personal actions, creating new opportunities to enable MUC to live its vision.
Emma is passionate about community and what happens when people find common ground in which to connect, when we discover our humanity and interconnectedness and therefore break the walls of labels and things that marginalise and segregate us from one another.
Emma lives locally in Manningham with her husband Drew and three children, Tyler, Oliver and Zoe.
