Our Irish Mission Worker – Philip Whelton
Philip is our Irish Mission worker and he and his wife Susan are also part of our Kirk Session (our leadership team at APC). He is passionate about Arklow and the community and loves nothing more than getting along side kids and teens and sharing about how much Jesus loves them. Philip is responsible for kids and teen ministry in the church as well as numerous community activities and loves chatting about God and life in his ‘office’ (the local coffee shop!). He spearheads the annual Holiday Bible Club where over 200 children and young people come for a week to laugh, play and learn more about Jesus. Susan runs the Montessori Pre-school that operates in the church hall, and they both are usually seen serving coffee, opening and preparing the church, and loving the community.
