Leaders

Our church leadership consists of a Core Team, a Wider Leadership Team and a board of Trustees. God’s heart for church is best modelled when we serve together as a family. While we have distinct functions and responsibilities, we work together as one team with a shared vision to see God’s plan for us fulfilled.
