MEET OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM
JOHN AND TIFFANY ROLLO
John and Tiffany moved to Shetland in July 2017 to pastor New Life. They have 2 kids, Ariana and Joel and a golden Labrador called Murphy. John was surprised to find he wasn't the only Falkirk FC fan on Shetland. Tiff was delighted that living on an island does not interrupt her online shopping.
ROBERT AND RHONA NICOLSON
Robert and Rhona have both grown up on Shetland and with their 2 teenage girls, Kirsty and Marni, live on the island of Trondra. They have been part of New Life Shetland from the beginning. Robert works in the fishing industry and has a keen interest in classic cars. Rhona works for a local graphic design company and has no interest in cars, classic or otherwise.
Originally from Kenya, Esther has lived in Shetland since 2006 with her husband, Charles. Together they have a daughter and a son. Esther has been a key part of the New Life leadership since April 2018.
Tim, originally from Australia, came over to the UK at 10 with his parents, and after a short stint back in Australia to study, moved to Shetland in 2020 with his wife Rachel to oversee the youth ministry of New Life. Tim is currently undertaking the AoG Ministers in Training course and in his spare time loves basketball, music and family days out with Rachel and their dog, Obi.
MADELEINE KERR - KIDS WORKER
Madeleine was born in Shetland and although moved away when she was 3 has always thought of it as her home. Maddy finished her A - levels but she wasn’t keen on the thought of uni so she made her dreams come true and moved back to Shetland that August in 2022. She is a joyful, loving person, although is mostly known for her car, you even may have seen her cruising around in her convertible go-kart. She has a heart for God, and a real love for children and is excited to lead the kids to Jesus.
TIM AND RACHEL MORRIS - YOUTH LEADERS
We’re excited to have Tim and Rachel as our Youth Leaders at New Life Shetland. They started with us back in January 2020.
Tim and Rachel got married in May 2019 and later that year felt the call of God to move to Shetland and work with the Youth. They love helping the young people discover Jesus, find their own faith and being a support through the tough teenage years - all while having some fun themselves at youth club!
