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 staff, the churchwardens and the Parish Church Council (the PCC).


The staff team is led by the vicar and oversee the day-to-day running of the church and the spiritual leadership of the church.

Church Wardens

Churchwardens are elected annually by the congregation as the senior lay leaders and representatives of the church. They are responsible for the church building and its contents, and are involved whenever a new vicar is appointed.

The PCC (Parish Church Council) is made up of a number of elected representatives (the current PCC members).

Action Teams

We have also set up five Action Teams to drive forward the vision of the church: the Children's and Youth Team, the Training & Discipleship Team, the Outreach Team, the Pastoral Team and the Buildings Team. Each Action Team is led by a PCC member and includes other PCC members and members of our church family.
