Mrs Naomi Rostron – Children’s & Youth Work Coordinator


Naomi Sharp


Hi, I’m Naomi and I am the Children’s and Youth Work Co-ordinator for Farnworth and Worsley Circuit. I grew up in the Methodist Church and came to this post straight out of university, after graduating in 2015 from reading languages (French and Italian) at the University of Cambridge.

As well as loving languages, I love rowing, drama, reading, my friends and family, and of course, God. My time at Cambridge was the catalyst in my love of rowing, a sport only really known to the rest of the country for one day a year, but which became a very central part of my university life. My passion for drama, on the other hand, started much earlier; the act of stepping into the shoes of a character and bringing them to life has always captivated me. As much as I enjoy acting, and engaging with others too, I’m introvert at heart, and can easily lose myself in a book for hours.

I’m the youngest of three, and grew up with my family, and the later addition of our beloved black lab, in the Midlands, in Stoke-on-Trent, only recently making the move up to Wigan in summer 2014. The are quickly felt like home, and I feel loved and supported as part of this Circuit family too.

For me, it is a privilege to walk alongside the children and youth in this Circuit, helping them to see God’s amazing, unconditional love and the joy and fun that can be had in following Him.
