Student Welcome

Meet Ruth






Meet your Student Missions Leader:

We would love to introduce you to Ruth Alexander who is your Student worker for St Giles church and FISH (Friendship International Students and Hosts). Ruth is originally from Norfolk, growing up there with her parents and three other siblings. However, when Ruth was 22 she became a missionary in places such a Mozambique, the UK and most recently, Jackson MS. In Jackson she worked with those who would come and Intern with the ministry. She gave training, biblical teaching and mentorship while doing hands on ministry alongside the Interns.

Ruth is thrilled to be joining you during this academic year! If you would like to contact your Student worker, please do by emailing Ruth at
