Hi, and welcome to my blog!
My name is Ellidh Cook, I’m in my early 30s, and were you to ask where I’m from, I think the fairest way to answer would be to say that I’m from ‘around’.
I’ve lived in London, Cumbria, Ayrshire, St Andrews, Glasgow, and Johannesburg, but now I call Newcastle upon Tyne home.
I work with UCCF: The Christian Unions as a CU Staff Worker, which means a lot of different things day to day, but is best summarised as helping university students to know Jesus better, and to introduce their friends to him too. I absolutely love my job, and I often talk about it here, but all that being said, here’s a wee disclaimer: The postings on this site are my own and don’t necessarily represent UCCF’s position, strategies or opinions. Okay?
Other things that take up my time, and blogging attention include: being part of the wonderful family that is Christ Church, Newcastle; attempting to make beautiful things from yarn and cotton and cake (usually not all at the same time); rediscovering the joys (and pains) of ballet as a less flexible adult; talking, writing, reading and thinking about theology (especially the Old Testament) and feminism; accidentally travelling the world, often with students; and various other random pursuits.
I love to write, but I especially love to chat to people about what I’m writing, so please get involved in the discussion by commenting on posts.
Thanks for stopping by!
