Born and raised in Ghana, Nicholas moved to the UK 14 years ago, working as a Pioneer Evangelist with young people in Bradford and South East London. Today, he brings this experience and passion with him as serves as Deacon in the Diocese of Southwark.
In 2013, Nicholas came to Thamesmead, Woolwich, and planted a church with young people who had no former connection with church.
He launched a Friday night youth club, a Tuesday night gathering, a Youth Alpha course and from this, a youth congregation that would meet on a Sunday evening.
Nicholas also worked with secondary schools and a youth charity on the estate in Abbey Wood, running football and lunch clubs.
Focused on getting young people off the streets and into a place where they could belong, connect with friends, and build relationships, Nicholas was able to mentor them, with Christian teaching.
Have a read of this story about @LebeyNicholas who planted and grew a church with young people. An amazing story! https://t.co/ce1tOND2vu
