Our ministers

All of us

The Bible teaches that every person who believes in Jesus is a minister. That’s in Ephesians chapter 4 verse 12.

So that means that we’ve got a church that’s full of ministers!

We’re involved in everything from playing music through to leading small group Bible studies; from occasional preaching through to running kids’ programs; from visiting sick and elderly through to leading services; from cooking and cleaning through to maintenance and gardening. Everyone does everything, and we’re sure there’s something that everyone can be involved with.

Stephen is married Sharen, and is our Acting Rector until May 2019.
