Meet the team

LiveWires is run under the Scripture Union Holidays umbrella. The team - about thirty of us - are all volunteers, including the overall leaders Steven and Roger.

Steven Ackroyd

Steven leads the technical activities programme on LiveWires, and can often be found trying to run extra network cables around the building late at night to get a bit more bandwidth between the graphics rendering computers. He lives near Oxford with his wife Karen, who's also on the LiveWires team (in fact, they met there) and their son Joshua, and his day job is designing computer systems for BBC Media Action.

Roger Pickard

Roger's favourite animal is the giraffe. He's a keen photographer who loves taking photos of all sorts of animals and is responsible for many of the photos on our website (even those without animals!). We don't have a photo of Roger yet as he seems to spend all his time behind the camera. He is married to Nicola who is also on the LiveWires team and they live in Uxbridge where they are involved in various roles in their church. Roger is an electronic engineer which also means he gives up a lot of his sleep on the holiday fixing electronics projects.
