I am Jessica Green and I am the new Youth Worker for Bro Lliedi LMA.I am looking forward to getting to know you, building professional relationships with you and extending those relationships, seeing and listening to all that God has in store for the future mission in Bro Lliedi LMA and of course seeing that through and journeying with you.

Jeremiah 29:11 ‘For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you.’

I am a lifelong committed Christian where I have attended and been a member of The Salvation Army. I have taken different steps on my Discipleship journey, from being dedicated to becoming a Junior Soldier and a Senior Soldier. I am a member of the songsters (Senior choir), band (where I play cornet) through which I use my gifts and find fellowship. Also, I helped start and am currently on the leadership team for a Friday night youth group called SAFUN in SA1 and Messy Church.

I grew up in Penarth, South Wales and moved to Swansea to study German and Spanish at Swansea University.

As a teacher and volunteer I know that to play a small part in a child’s life is one of the best, invigorating and most rewarding things !

Between 2016 and 2021 I worked as a Regional Specialist for Family Ministries, This role involved me working and journeying alongside and with toddler groups, Messy Churches, all-age worship, women’s and men’s fellowship and mid-week groups when families were represented. I had the privilege to lead training in Godly Play, Messy Church and Parenting programmes and leading worship at different corps settings and family services (café Church to more traditional). Attended and help lead weekends away for churches and women from the Territory, titled ‘Women and God weekend’. I truly saw God present and working in people’s lives in the area I covered. A blessing.

I truly believe God has called me to fulfil His mission in this area, and I ask that you will welcome, encourage, support and journey with me in this next step of God’s plan.This is an exciting, new journey for me, but I am so excited and looking forward to all that God has instore for Bro Lliedi LMA.

I am trusting God and placing our prayers in His hands. I pray that you will be a part of this journey with me.

The United Benefice and Local Ministry Area of Bro Lliedi was created on 9th November 2017.

The Bro Lliedi Local Ministry Area is part of the Arch Deaconry of Carmarthen, in the Diocese of St David’s within the Church in Wales. The Local Ministry Area (LMA) comprising of the former parishes of Llanelli, Dafen, Felinfoel, Llangennech and Llwynhendy with a population of over 68,000 is situated in the South Eastern corner of Carmarthenshire in South West Wales. It lies some twelve miles west of the City of Swansea and the Town of Llanelli itself covers approximately 2070 acres. The LMA  is a coastal region where the Welsh language is still widely spoken. It has a long association with the tinplate, steel, and coal mining industries, and is the home of the world-famous Llanelli Scarlets, one of Wales’ four regional rugby teams.
