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.

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!
