The Leadership Team… and other helpful folk!
The Leadership Team aims to discern the direction in which God wants us to travel, and encourages the congregation to follow.
The Social Committee
Social events form a central part of our year, bringing people together. We have an energetic social committee that is great at organising events ranging from the Winter and May fairs, to line dancing and quizzes. Many charities, local, national and international, have benefited from their efforts. Social events are fun and popular, and a good opportunity to get to know one another and make new friends.
