Ryan Atkinson is an Elder at New Springs and also sits on the Board of Directors and Trustees. He first came to Loughborough in 1996 to study at university and joined the church shortly afterwards; he’s been an active part of the fellowship ever since. He is a wise and gifted man and a major player in the team at Loughborough.
Ryan and Jo met while running the student house group together at New Springs and were married in 2006. They now live in Woodhouse Eaves and both work in Nottingham. They have two daughters, Emma and Hannah.
Jo works with deaf people at Nottinghamshire Deaf Society and interprets for the deaf during our Sunday meetings. She is passionate about seeing that work grow and develop and seeing more deaf people come to the Lord as well as encouraging members of the church to learn sign language.
Ryan works for Boots as an IT manager. With such skills he is the ideal man to oversee the whole of the Technical Department at New Springs.
