Assistant Head of Leadership Network and Science Network Co-ordinator.
Emma grew up on the sunny Suffolk coast, where she came to faith through supportive Christian parents and a wonderful Bible-teaching church. After school, she moved to Cambridge to study Natural Sciences, specialising in Biochemistry. The highlight of her time at uni was getting involved in the Christian Union, which gave her a passion for seeing students come to know Christ!
After graduating she joined the Relay programme, working alongside students in Cambridge and Bedfordshire to take the gospel out to their universities. Having loved getting involved in several research projects during her degree, she was planning a career in the lab – but God had other plans, and in 2019 she joined UCCF staff as Science Network Coordinator, allowing her to combine her love for science with her enthusiasm for helping students meet Jesus! She finds great joy in seeing science being used for the glory of God, and students learning to connect their faith with their studies.
Alongside running the Science Network, Emma supports Ben Harding in heading up the Leadership Network team, and coordinates the Christian Persuaders initiative, training students and graduates to communicate the gospel persuasively in their context. When she’s not at work, you’ll find her running, trying out new recipes with husband Adam, or working on her latest knitting project.
