Leadership Team

Leadership Team

We have ten deacons who serve in leadership of the church alongside the Minister. They are elected by Church members. Deacons serve for a three year period. The Ministers and Deacons act as Charity Trustees of the church. A Secretary and Treasurer are appointed annually from the Deacons.

We also have a Families and Children’s Worker.
