We are an active and dedicated team of volunteers who work together to offer a warm welcome to all in our worship, through fellowship and by our mission to the community and further afield.
Our Licenced Lay Readers are Jennie Bonner and Geraldine Sansom
The PCC is made up of the wardens, chairs of the various committees, representatives of the Deanery Synod, a Safeguarding officer, a treasurer, secretary and up to 6 elected members. Collectively they manage the church’s finances and activities.
