Helen works with Calvary Church Castlebar in County Mayo. Her main responsibility is to help women in the church and community learn from the Bible and to live for Jesus in every area of life.
Helen grew up in Liverpool but her parents were from County Mayo and so, growing up, Helen enjoyed something of the Irish culture at home and when visiting her parents’ home country. She worked in London for many years and this was where she came to understand the good news of Jesus for the first time. Before moving to Ireland in 2016 she was working with a church in London.
As the women's worker for Calvary Church, Helen runs bible study groups and reads the Bible one-to-one with women. She helps run an after-school bible club for primary school aged children and leads a bible study for teenage girls.

When the Gentiles were turning to God in the days of the apostles, there was an understanding that God did not discriminate between Jew and Gentile but purified both by faith and gave his Spirit to both. Not wanting to make it difficult for the Gentiles, yet not wanting to offend Jewish sensibilities, they concluded to write some instruction to the Gentiles in this regard (Acts 15).
James concludes in v21 ‘For the law of Moses has been preached in every city from the earliest times and is read in the synagogues on every Sabbath.’ As if to say, because the Jews are hearing the Scriptures. Perhaps it was also to not make it difficult for the Jews to turn to Jesus and join the Gentile believers.
