DEACONS

 
Twelve Deacons are part of the dynamic leadership team that operates alongside Amanda (Senior Minister) in shaping the spiritual growth and hands-on running of the church. The Deacons meet regularly to bring the needs of the Church to God in prayer and to encourage each other. They take an active part in the Sunday services whether leading, giving talks, serving communion or acting as Duty Deacon to deal with the unexpected! In addition, deacons head up ministry squads that cover all aspects of church life.
