Welcome to the ARC UK Board page! Our volunteers work tirelessly throughout the year to make sure the ARC projects run as smoothly as possible. We've all been on projects and are passionate about the work ARC does. Learn a little more about us below.
Arielle Jasiewicz-Gill works with the other Boards across Europe to ensure projects run smoothly and that relationships with host churches are maintained. She first became involved in ARC as a guide in Florence in 2019. Her background is in history and English literature and she is currently studying for a Master’s in Medieval Studies.
Mollie Cornell recruits and trains English-speaking volunteers each year. She works together with the Recruitment Assistants.
All current and prospective ARC volunteers should contact Mollie in the first instance.
Rory Lamb looks after the finances of ARC UK. He keeps our accounts, oversees fundraising and administers quarterly expenses. Prospective benefactors are invited to contact him.
Anna Beketov creates all publicity material. Anna is currently working at the British Museum whilst studying for a masters in Arts Management at Birkbeck, University of London. Her undergraduate degree is in History of Art from the University of Leeds and she joined the ARC committee after having the time of her life on an ARC project in Beziers.
Organisations or individuals wishing to become involved with ARC are welcome and should contact Anna.
The Revd Jules Cave Bergquist has been the chaplain of ARC UK for many years. We could never be what we are today without her support, encouragement, practical help and enthusiasm for our work!
