Meet the Team

The leadership team are responsible for the day to day life of the church. They provide experience and guidance, nurturing spiritual growth, and helping those in need. In the Bible, elders are often referred to as shepherds as they provide pastoral care and direction for the church. Deacons have a special interest in the practical aspects of the church. If you would like to speak with the team, please let us know via the Contact Us page.
