Mary & Dave Butt
We have led the Holiday Club for the last seven years. Mary first came on the team when she was 16, and although Dave reckons that she looks like that was only 5 years ago, it’s been a long association for both of us with the holiday club and the town. Mary works for Manchester City Mission heading up the Groundbreakers project, taking school assemblies, lunch clubs, workshops and also all age services in churches. After twenty years as deputy head of a C of E high school in the centre of Manchester, Dave is moving to a school in Wythenshawe to teach in their alternative provision. We are involved in the leadership of our church in Oldham where Mary leads worship and Dave is an elder and gets to preach regularly. We love to support other churches across Manchester taking all-age services and preaching. The holiday club team is like a family, it helps that our own grown-up children, and our daughter-in-law, are on team, but year after year team come back and are joined by new folk all eager to serve Jesus together.
