Tim Friend - Ventures and Falcons Principal
Tim heads up the CPAS Ventures and Falcons team, running over 100 life-changing Christian holidays for 8-18s each year. He has been a leader himself on the Sizewell Venture for several years, and has also led on Christians in Sport camps. He began his role as Ventures and Falcons principal in 2013, following his roles as sports ambassador and then DYO (diocesan youth officer) for the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham. He has also worked as an associate evangelist for Christians in Sport and a sports minister for a charity in the Cotswolds.
Tim grew up going to the South Hants Bible Camps and his favourite games were 'hunt the leader', 'bouncy boxing' and table tennis. Tim is passionate about reaching young people with the gospel through residential ministry (despite being 'banned' from camp himself as a youngster for leading raids on other tents at night armed with pillows!).

Jude Palmer - Ventures and Falcons Operations Manager
Jude heads up operations in the Ventures and Falcons team and keeps everything running in the office so Tim has more time to get out and about, expanding our mission and holidays. She is also our resident canal expert, can cook for up to 220 volunteers at a time and can often be found in a big red transit van.
