Our Staff and Leadership

Jesus is the leader of our church – that's why we put such a focus on the Bible.  Under him, our church is led by our minister, churchwardens, Ministry Leadership Team (MLT) and the Parish Church Council (the PCC).  The day to day running of the church is overseen by our staff team.


The staff team is led by our minister.

The PCC (Parish Church Council) includes the minister, churchwardens and a number of elected representatives. It's role is to enable our mission and ministry by looking after the buildings, finances and official policies.


We also have set up a Ministry Leadership Team that assists the minister in overseeing the mission and ministry of the church. This is made up of the minister, churchwardens and a number of members of the congregation.

Episcopal Oversight

As well as being fully part of the Diocese of Norwich, we have an evangelical resolution in place which means we also receive oversight from the Bishop of Ebbsfleet.
