Not long after this, Izzy became the Mustard Live Team Leader Herself! She is a talented actress and was a wonderful addition to our Live team bringing enthusiasm and imagination

Seeds of Change Appeal June 2020

Seeds of Change Appeal 2020 There are many factors that go into running Mustard, and at the beginning of 2020 we saw a lot of them change. A few long serving staff members departed to continue their journeys, a new Director started, and a global pandemic hit meaning our student lunchtime groups could no longer meet in person and we couldn’t go into

Directors Desk November 2019

“Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there –

SILENCE 2019 Update

I participated in SILENCE for the very first time this Sunday and what an unexpected experience it was! To give you some idea of my personality, I am an extrovert who loves chatting to people, and have a musical streak, which means I often find myself singing to myself without even realising. Safe to say, SILENCE was a challenge, and

Directors Desk October 2019

You need to listen! The conductor of my high school concert band was a fun and focused man. He knew how to laugh and enjoy the process of making great music; but when he picked up the baton, he meant business. His capacity to hear the slightest of off-pitch sounds amidst a forty-piece concert band was incredible (and equally terrifying).

SILENCE 2019 Update

SILENCE is back again, and this year it’s bigger and better than ever before! This October we are challenging everyone (including you) to be completely silent for up to 24 hours. But that’s not all! Going silent is an excellent way to portray how Christians in school sometimes feel like they can’t properly communicate their faith, but we also wanted

Comms Corner Update December 2018

It wouldn’t be a Mustard Christmas article if I didn’t start with ‘what a year!’. Albeit a cliché, this phrase still rings true as I think about the year that we’ve had. 2018 has been a blur of reimagining, breakthrough, growth and celebration. While previous years have mostly consisted of visioning and planning, I can say that for the Comms

Mustard Live Update December 2018

Every day I encounter dozens, if not hundreds, of people. I say hundreds, if not thousands, of words. Most of the time I throw my words around sloppily, like so many coffee-depraved graphic designers before 11am. My words seem pointless, though when I uttered them, I could have sworn I had a point. Maybe it was saying goodbye to a

Student Movement Update December 2018

If I were to sum up the Student Movement in a phrase, I’d say it’s God’s Kingdom in the hands of young people. The Christmas decorations are up, carols are playing and it will soon be time to bid farewell to this fantastic year. 2018 signals my first year as the Mustard Student Movement Team Leader, coordinating Lunchtime Groups across

Mustard Live Update November 2018

This month we headed to Donvale Christian College to run an event on building a strong character and how the technology of our day, namely social media, can have a negative effect on our growth. We brought in some old faces (thank you, Andrew Kitchen – former Mustard Live Manager) and raised up some new ones (our newest team member,
